Music plays a big part in setting the scene at the Dickens fair.
Here are the carolers rehearsing. (And yes, I came home and listened to Sting’s version of The Angel Gabriel From Heaven Came.)
The fair has been so well thought out. There are little spaces for all sorts of activities. The Bruno Academy of Music is actually a space where performers can take a break in public view. Musicians sat around taking a break between sets and they welcomed me in to join them.
This lady tuned her instrument and practiced her piece before it was time for her to perform.
The Dickens Fair runs through this weekend. If you’ve never been, you can still visit.
