Readers of ‘A Christmas Carol’ will read for ten minute and twenty-minute slots as they wish; all are invited to come by and take part: phone 07980154858 should you wish to reserve a slot or just turn up and a slot will be gladly found. Or simply turn up and enjoy the marathon reading!
We will be using Charles Dickens own reading edition of the book which he used to fund sums for educational and other deserving causes.
Victorian costume optional!
Actors and writers from across Brent will be joining residents in this important festive event as the Campaign for the libraries enters its third year!
All children and adults welcome!
As Tiny Tim tells us ‘Merry Christmas one and all!’ or as Brent might say’Bah! Humbug!’
