Conference Centre, British Library (London, UK)
Fri, 9th December 2011 - Sat, 10th December 2011

Christmas is a time for telling ghost stories and enjoying magic. Charles Dickens summoned up the best seasonal spooks and he was also a gifted amateur magician. Writer and broadcaster, Brian Sibley evokes literary illusions from some of Dickens's best loved stories while David Weeks of The Magic Circle presents interludes of bewildering bafflement out of the Victorian conjuror's box of tricks. Friday 9 December 18.30 – 20.00 and repeated on Saturday 10 December 14.30 - 16.00. Suitable for all aged 8 and above. This event is part of the
