Hello, welcome to the home page of the Rochester Pickwick Club.
With the bi-centenary of Charles Dickens’ birth in 2012 we felt we should put away our quill pens and move into the world of the internet.
Hence the launch of this web site which we hope will not only convey the ‘spirit’ of our club but will also act as a source of information about Dickens and his works: Rochester and its copious connections with the author and give a flavour of the renowned annual “Dickens’ Festivals”.
The costumed meetings of the Rochester Pickwick Club itself were admirably summed up by a recent guest as “Great Company, Great Vittles and Great Humour”. He applied for Associate Membership the following day!
We very much hope you enjoy your visit, to our site.
