Family: Dickens Day - Boz and the Boy

06 July 2013, 10:30 - 16:30

Join author Kevin Millicheap and illustrator Freddie Darke for a workshop based on their e-book, Boz & the Boy.

Boz & the Boy tells the story of the young Charles Dickens and his encounter with a Foundling Hospital pupil. Families will work together to write a new conclusion to the story, illustrate their ideas in large scale, and see their work turned into an e-book!

For children aged 7 plus and their families.

Free for children and up to two accompanying adults with Museum admission. 

Workshops will run from 10:30-12:30 and 13:30-15:30.
