Well, Richard, Miss Havisham was dumped by her intended before her wedding and lived her life alone in a big house that went to ruin and she never changed her wedding dress.
I suggest that you watch the film because Magwitch, the escaped prisoner, destined for a life 'down-under' meets Pip in the churchyard on the Cooling marshes, but he is recaptured and deported. (I have previously posted a pic of the Cooling Church). Magwitch reappears many years later after he has made some money down-under. Miss Havisham dies when her filthy big, vermin infested house burns down.
That puts a two hour film and a lengthy book into a few words. Good Luck.:-)

Great pictures. In the Netherlands is the town Deventer where in decembre a weekend is where local people are dressed in the cloths from the dickens era. A lot of spectators are attending the town to see it. Even the catering has been adjusted. It is a pity i have no decent pictures of this event.

Thanks Jos, that’s interesting. We have three Dickensian type festivals a year in Rochester plus other events. I felt that the event was marred by COVID somewhat this year as well as the miserable weather, but there was plenty of people ignoring the distancing advice.
Most of the characters give themselves names from Dickens novels and dress accordingly.
I only got a few shots this time.

Edit - Jos, I have posted a few pictures from a previous festival a few pages back.

Regards

thanks for the shortened version Ray :-P
She certainly dressed up well in your photo.
Don't hold out too many expectations for me being converted to CD though.
Now if it was The Mikado,The Pirates of Penzance or My Fair Lady then all's good :-P
I actually 'rewrote' I am the very model of a modern Major-General for my daughter putting it to contemporary happenings in the family! Young daughter was rather fascinated - got to keep the very young amused somehow :lol:

No, Richard, I’ll not hold you to read CD - I have only read extracts myself although it was rammed into us at school.:-(
As soon as you mentioned Gilbert and Sullivan’s renderings the Modern Major General came to mind before I saw your next part of the sentence, telepathy:-). It must have been fun to do - what a tongue twister.-? I have got those recordings on my car memory.

Thanks Jos, you just have to go along and soak up the atmosphere. Although I know the organisers I just hang my camera around my neck and pretend to be a tourist.

It's a Punch and Judy show folks.
Well! Well! Here we have a good old fashioned Punch and Judy Show - Kids loving it and adults being reminded of days gone by with their parents and grandparents.
Harmless fun but politically incorrect and violent - that is if you want to be offended by it.

Here is an answer to a question I searched on Google.
Q. Is Punch and Judy banned in UK?
A. "We have recently passed a motion condemning violence against women and violence in the home." The puppet show - originated in Italy in the 16th Century - has already been banned by some councils across Britain. It features several characters including a crocodile who steals a string of sausages off Punch.
