Red Brick AuditoriumSquare Chapel
David will speak about the 1858 visit of Dickens to Halifax, explain what the novelist thought of the town, and what our local newspapers thought of him. In which local building did he read from “A Christmas Carol” in public? Includes the story of Dickens’ wife’s family, the Hogarths, who lived in St John’s Lane in the early 1830s: two of Dickens’ in-laws being baptised at our own Parish Church. And there will be some suitable readings from “A Christmas Carol”!
Ticket income from David Glover’s Illustrated Local History talks goes directly into supporting Square Chapel.
