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.
Meetings are on the 3rd Wednesday of each month (except December, January & February)
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. (Map)
