TWISTS & TRANSFORMATION: DICKENS'S LONDON BOROUGH

5pm-7pm; starts at John Harvard Library, 211 Borough High
Street; £6
This walk through the streets of Old Borough follows the
'Twists and Transformations' of Dickens's early childhood,

encountering the traumatic turns in Dickens's early years,
we reveal something of his restless spirit, manifest in his
compulsive night-walking and his feelings of
'houselessness'. A CoolTan Arts event.
