Dickens Holiday Festival

Sunday, December 10, 2017

From 10AM to 5PM.  

This year the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation will pay homage to the holiday spirit and Charles Dickens with its Dickens Holiday Festival on Sunday, December 10, from 10am to 5pm.  

Housed in the birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution — the site of Francis Cabot Lowell’s first manufacturing Mill — the Museum is the perfect backdrop to showcase stage readings of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.”  Costumed actors will be reading scenes from the classic holiday tale in the Museum’s Main Gallery, which once functioned as the last boiler house for the Boston Manufacturing Company. 

The holiday merriment continues upstairs in the old engine room of the Boston Manufacturing Company.  Now a ballroom, this space will be filled with musical performances and vendors hawking holiday wares for near future seasonal celebrations. 

All this to be enjoyed in the decked out halls of the Museum for standard Museum admission of: $10 for Adults, $5 for Seniors (65+) and Students, Free for Kids under 5, Members, and Active Duty Military
