Warning - people will roam around Ely dressed in Dickensian costume. But don’t worry... it’s a Rotary walk-about

PUBLISHED: 14:10 13 September 2012

ON September 29, a strange thing is going to happen in Ely.

There will be people roaming about dressed in costume that would be fitting for the time of Dickens. Rotary will be doing a walk-about!

It’s in support of our Dickens Supper, which has been organised for November 17 at Witchford Village Hall, in aid of the eradication of polio fund. Rotary, in association with the Gates Foundation in America, aims to rid the world finally of this terrible disease.

The evening is planned to be a light-hearted supper dedicated to the bicentenary of the great man’s birth.

It promises to be a very entertaining evening full of fun, with the hall elaborately decorated; candle-lit tables, and the company in period dress.

Tickets are limited to 120, priced at £25 each, to include a three-course meal with a glass of wine and entertainment, so to prevent disappointment telephone 01353 661601, e-mail bradleyd@waitrose.com or toddle along to Burrows bookshop.
