Ware Dickensian Evening

COVID-19 Update

Message from Dickensian Organiser – Thursday 16th April 2020

In view of our current circumstances; following recent COVID-19 updates, Jan Wing and I have decided to place all Dickensian stall bookings on hold (for now). 

Although we are compliant with government guidelines, keeping to safety standards as expected, we are eager to return to planning for Dickensian 2020. However, as we are unsure of our future regarding mass gatherings at this stage, we can only promise to update you accordingly. 

We are hopeful this is a temporary measure, and look forward to the possibility of returning to normal and working with you in the very near future!

Warm regards

Amanda
