Charles Dickens: Irish Friends and Family Ties exhibition in Belfast

From PRONI in Belfast:

To coincide with the West Belfast Festival the ‘Charles Dickens: Irish Friends and Family Ties’ exhibition is open to the public and explores the relationships of Charles Dickens and his children along with three prominent local figures: James Emerson Tennent, Francis D. Finlay and Lord Dufferin. The exhibition features records from PRONI’s archives and material from the Charles Dickens Museum and elsewhere.

The exhibition is currently on display for the duration of the West Belfast Festival, which ends on August 11th, at Conway Mill Preservation Trust, Belfast.

Entry to the exhibition is free. For further information contact PRONI at proni@dcanlni.gov.uk or Conway Mill Preservation Trust at info@conwaymill.org
