We would like to invite you to join us for a day at the Dickens Festival in Deventer on December 16th.

The charming town of Deventer recreates the 19th century world of Charles Dickens at Christmas time.

More than 950 characters from the famous books of Dickens come to life. Oliver Twist, Scrooge, Marley and Mr. Pickwick are all there. Vagabonds are begging, thieves are stealing. You smell the punch, puffed potatoes and roasted chestnuts. Wealthy ladies and gentlemen with top hats parade in the streets. Christmas Carol Singers go from door to door.

The scenery of the festival consists of historical buildings and houses, Christmas trees and thousands of little lights. Not only in the street, but also behind the windows, in the houses and in the little shops and galleries the romantic time of Dickens comes alive.

Each year the 2 day festival brings in more than 125,000 visitors . Please note that there is a queue of +/- 60 minutes for the entrance of the Dickens Festival.

Our group will travel by train together (1hr 40min) to Deventer (no transfers).  Once we arrive, the group is free to split up—shop at the Christmas market, enjoy the characters on the streets, have lunch and so on.  The group plans to take the 16:15 train from Deventer to arrive back in Tilburg at 17:57.

Train Ticket information:

tíc will be purchasing group tickets (a great discount! The regular price is €40 round trip). NS requires that your ticket information match your ID information and requires your name & date of birth when booking the ticket. Please send this information for tic to use when booking your NS ticket.

We look forward to having you along with us on this fun day trip!
