Eastgate House, A Christmas Carol, Ebenezer Scrooge, Dickensian Christmas

Just for a change I spent a day on the other side of the camera at Rochester's Dickensian Christmas Festival on Saturday (2nd December).

Following a last minute request for a stand in, I offered to play the character of Scrooge at Eastgate House to help promote all the great Victorian Christmas events coming up there, including performances of Dickens' classic story, A Christmas Carol.

I have to say it was great fun posing for pictures, meeting festival goers, and calling out from the windows of this wonderful 16th century townhouse. I even found myself joining in with the candlelit parade with my trusty housekeeper, Mrs Dilber.

The Dickensian Christmas Festival is run by Medway Council and is a great event to photograph with its many colourful characters and historic backdrops.

Bah humbug? No, we all had the Dickens of a time!
