Charles Dickens - A Southwark Childhood


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Dickens's experiences of the Borough area during his time there in 1824.

The places, people and living conditions he experienced during his short time in the area provided inspiration and context to many characters and narratives in his later writing.

The exhibition explores these key locations, such as the Marshalsea Prison, St George the Martyr Church and Mint Street workhouse and how they influenced his novels.

The exhibition will use objects, artworks and illustrations from the museum's collection to map Dickens' experiences and how they informed his writing.
