The Great Dickens Christmas Fair 2019: A photo journal

This year, for the first time in its history, the Great Dickens Christmas Fair hosted a live recording of a podcast. Christmas Past: Live from the Great Dickens Christmas Fair happened in the Carolers’ Tent on November 24 and the episode debuted on December 1. In addition to hosting the show, yours truly also got a chance to stroll the streets of Victorian London, meet some interesting characters, and enjoy some delicious foods (including an authentic steamed Christmas pudding!)

Here’s a selection of photos and videos from the event (with more to come).
