Community Cohesion

COVID-19 Update

As I am sure you will be expecting with the current circumstances and uncertainty about large gatherings we have made the decision to cancel Dickensian 2020 and replan for
3rd December 2021.

Please do check our website or Facebook Page for any further updates



In 2017 volunteers from HRC (Event Management Students) helped us put together a Treasure Hunt before Dickensian Evening last year. This was a huge success with over 140 children and their families taking part, with each child receiving a chocolate Christmas Selection Box for completing the challenge and a chance for their family to get their hands on a luxury hamper. 


Each entrant was given a set of instructions to follow that took them all the way through Ware High Street. Each business that took part had a letter in their window that generated a word at the end of the trail!


HRC Event Management Students replaced the former 'Treasure Hunt' with a 'Character Hunt in 2019

The poster below was designed by the students as part of their assignment


If you would like to get involved in Dickensian we do ask for a minimum donation of £25. This helps towards the running cost of the event and is very much appreciated!

If you donate to Ware Dickensian Evening, then you will automatically be eligible to take part in the Dickensian Town Hunt (this may change year on year, as HRC students organise this)

You will need to let us know, so we know to come and visit you!

Please email if you would like to get involved.

Once we know how many businesses are taking part you will get a visit from one of our lovely students or one of our friendly event volunteers who will provide you with some more information.

We aim for the hunt to be available to the public at least 2 weeks before the event
