This year the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation will pay homage to the holiday spirit and Charles Dickens with its Dickens Holiday Festival on Sunday, December 10, from 10am to 4:30pm.

Housed in the birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution — the site of Francis Cabot Lowell’s first manufacturing Mill — the Museum is the perfect backdrop to showcase stage readings of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.”

Costumed actors will be reading scenes from the classic holiday tale in the Museum’s Main Gallery, which once functioned as the last boiler house for the Boston Manufacturing Company.

Additionally, Marci Diamond will portray Catherine Dickens and shares stories about her life, Victorian Christmas and culinary traditions, and what it's like to be married to the most famous author in the world.

The holiday merriment continues upstairs in the old engine room of the Boston Manufacturing Company. Now a ballroom, this space will be filled with musical performances by carolers, bell ringers and a fiddler.

The Mill’s last boiler that still stands there and the coal infused bricks are also a perfect setting for the carolers and bell ringers who will be performing in the Main Gallery in between readings.

For your shopping needs, vendors will be hawking holiday wares for near future seasonal celebrations. There will be soap makers, handmade lace, fantastic art, unique jewelry and so much more!

All this to be enjoyed in the decked out halls of the Museum for standard Museum admission of: $10 for Adults, $5 for Seniors (65+) and Students, Free for Kids under 5, Members, and Active Duty Military.
