Dickens 2012 is an international celebration of the life and work of Charles Dickens to mark the bicentenary of his birth, which falls on 7 February 2012. Institutions and organisations from all over the world are partners of Dickens 2012 and work together to deliver a programme of events and activities to commemorate this very special anniversary.

Although a writer from the Victorian era, Dickens’s work transcends his time, language and culture. He remains a massive contemporary influence throughout the world and his writings continue to inspire film, TV, art, literature, artists and academia. Dickens 2012 sees a rich and diverse programme of events taking place in the run up and throughout the whole of 2012.

London highlights include:

- Dickens and London at the Museum of London, until 10th June 2012
- Dickens on Screen at the BFI Southbank, until 28th February 2012
- A Hankering after Ghosts: Charles Dickens and the Supernatural at The British Library, until 4th March 2012
