Charles Dickens’ life celebrated by Potters Bar school
TWO centuries ago one of Britain’s, and indeed the world’s, most famous writers was born.
So what better than to celebrate the birthday of Charles Dickens with a special Victorian event.
And that’s exactly what students and teachers at Dame Alice Owen’s School did, as they adorned themselves in either a Dickensian novel fancy dress or Victorian clothing and took part in baking delicious treats and playing games, too.
A town crier was called in to make the event even more authentic, while stalls with everything 1812 made for a “fantastic” day, according to English teacher Katie Kennedy.
She told the Potters Bar Edition: “We had an absolutely brilliant time, everyone took part in the fancy dress which was great.
