Broadstairs Dickens Festival - 19 to 21 June
Author Charles Dickens visited Broadstairs regularly from 1837 - 1859. In 1937, to commemorate the centenary of the author's first visit, Gladys Waterer, the then resident of Dickens House, conceived the idea of putting on a production of David Copperfield and of having people about the town in Victorian dress to publicise it. Thus the festival was born and, with the exception of the years of World War 2, has been held annually ever since.
