Dickens Day

The time of A Christmas Carol comes atmospherically to life during Dickens Day on 16 December 2022 in Medemblik. Some 150 extras, musicians and choir members will transport you into the world of Scrooge, Jacob Marley, Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim. They tell Charles Dickens' Christmas story in which the grumpy and miserly Scrooge turns into a kind benefactor on Christmas Eve. Be enchanted by the carols, scenes and colours of yesteryear! Listen breathlessly to the story of the Dickens storyteller, stroll past attractively decorated stalls or enjoy a tasty Dickensian menu in one of the many restaurants.



The Christmas market is open to the public between 16:00 and 21:00. The range of market stalls is diverse. From atmospheric Christmas decorations to artisanal local products, from clothes to bric-a-brac, you can find everything. Of course, you will receive a map with a clear overview upon arrival. Admission is free.
