On 1 December we will celebrate the successful conclusion of the CLiC Dickens project with a half-day of talks and workshop activities. The workshop will illustrate exercises that can be used in the English classroom. We will also showcase the new CLiC corpora that include more A-Level and GCSE texts as well as a children's literature corpus. Participants of the CLiC Dickens Day will receive a free copy of the CLiC Activity Book.

To conclude the CLiC Dickens Day there will be a drinks reception followed by a dramatic reading of the Sikes and Nancy scene from Oliver Twist.

The CLiC Dickens Day is free, but it is essential that you register via Eventbrite, as places are limited.
