IPM | Dickens Holiday Celebration

Hosted/Organized by: International Printing Museum

December 14th, 2019, will be the Printing Museum’s ever popular annual event, our Dickens Holiday Celebration. From 10 am to 4 pm guests will have the opportunity to experience Victorian England as never before. Visitors must reserve tickets for a specific performance time (11 am, 1 pm, or 3 pm) as we have limited seating in our theater.

PLEASE NOTE Guests for the 3 pm show are encouraged to arrive by 1:30 to enjoy all the other activities before the 3 pm show after which the event is over.

Your transportation back in time will cause the Museum’s galleries to be transformed into Fezziwig’s Warehouse with special presentations, tours, carolers, music, and the chance to print your own Victorian cards on antique presses from the 1850’s. You will have the chance to meet characters from various Dickens novels including the nefarious Fagin, the mad Miss Havisham and the sneaky Artful Dodger. Enjoy the vintage holiday music from “Captain Jack” and his 1895 Concert Roller Organ.

The highlight of your visit will be with Mr. Charles Dickens himself entertaining guests in the Museum’s Heritage Theater; he will retell his most famous story, A Christmas Carol, becoming Scrooge and randomly using his audience as cast members.

There will be a festive lunch of an English Banger, gingerbread and punch included with your ticket. We believe that it would be a humbug if you did not come to the International Printing Museum’s Dickens Holiday Celebration dressed in your finest Victorian dress!

Nathaniel Winkle from The Pickwick Papers will try to sell Ol’ Ben Franklin’s Electro-Static Generator as a Christmas present with”shocking results!”

It is important that you make your reservations early as this event sells out quickly each year. You may also purchase your tickets by calling the Printing Museum at (310) 515-7166.
