Percy Fitzgerald: Friend or Fan? Discovering Dickens through Percy’s Collection – A Wigmore Lecture


Medway’s own research expert, Jeremy Clarke will present: Percy Fitzgerald: Friend or Fan? Discovering Dickens Through Percy’s Collection. This event is a streamed event from Wigmore Library on Wednesday 28th April at 7:30pm

Fitzgerald met Dickens in 1856. It changed his life. This talk introduces the collection of rare material he assembled during the later years of the 19th century, and which he donated to the new Rochester Museum in 1912. It gives us a chance to explore the wilder fringes of the Dickens phenomenon, experience some of the voracious activity of this collector and, perhaps, document the beginnings of an industry.

This streamed Wigmore Lecture will start at 7.30pm and conclude at 9.00pm. Your link to join will be sent to you on the day of the event to the e-mail address attached to your booking. If you are making a booking for multiple attendees who use different e-mail addresses, please contact the Box Office on 01634 338338 to make your booking.

Tickets: £4.00 or £3.00 for Library Membership holders.


The link for your streamed lecture will be sent to your e-mail address on the day of the Lecture.
