Dickens in Teesdale Group to evaluate packed year of events to celebrate author's bicentenary
A LOOK-back at how Teesdale celebrated the 200th anniversary of Charles Dickens is to be held this month.
The Dickens in Teesdale Group organised a whole host of events to mark the author's bicentenary last year, ranging from talks and guided walks to a three-day international conference.
On Wednesday, February 27, the group will host an evaluation day at Woodleigh, on Scar Top, Barnard Castle.
Organiser Sandra Moorhouse said there would be an exhibition of photographs taken at the various events and people were welcome to take their own along as well.
She said the idea of the evaluation day was to assess whether the group had achieved its aims, such as encouraging tourism to Teesdale.
The evaluation day is open from 10.30pm to 3pm. Refreshments and home-made cake will be available.
