Advertising in our Programme

As part of their certificate course, students from Hertford Regional College are put to the task to design this year's posters and the Dickensian Evening programme cover. Students from the College will also be involved in the planning and fundraising for the event, which is run entirely by volunteers.

The 2017 Dickensian Evening Programme will be made available for FREE online and in print from November.

Copies will be distributed around town including in the Priory, Ware Library, Ware Museum, Wodson Park and local shops.
