Welcome to the Melbourne Dickens Fellowship

We aim to knit together in a common bond of fellowship lovers of that great master of humour and pathos, Charles John Huffam Dickens (1812-70);
and to spread the love of humanity, which is the keynote of all his works.

General meetings are on the 3rd Wednesday of each month from March to November
at The Faichney Room, Toorak Uniting Church, 603 Toorak Rd, Toorak, Victoria starting 7:30pm for 7:45pm

We welcome visitors. Please just come along & announce yourself or email the Secretary at info@dickens.asn.au in advance. (Map)
