Go Behind The Scenes Of Dickensian

TV show Dickensian is being brought to life at the Charles Dickens Museum in Bloomsbury later this month.

The 20 part BBC series sees characters from several Dickens novels living side by side, and the new exhibition goes behind the scenes of the making of the programme.

Costumes worn by the likes of Caroline Quentin and Pauline Collins, and designed by BAFTA and EMMY award-winning costume designer Andrea Galer, will go on display at the London townhouse.

The Garraway's shop sign from the set hangs in the museum.

Vistors can see props used during filming alongside furniture bought by Dickens himself in the house where he completed The Pickwick Papers and wrote Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nickleby.

Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the Dickensian is the set; it's the largest of its kind ever created in the UK for a television series, featuring a 90-metre long cobbled Market Street with 27 two-storey buildings. Get an insight into how it was created, complete with working fireplaces and street lights.

See a model of the record breaking set.

Dickensian: Behind the Scenes of the new BBC Drama is at the Charles Dickens Museum 19 January-17 April 2016. Adults £9; Concessions £6; Children (6-16) £4; Under 6 free.
