Jeremy Harmer and Steve Bingham give a performance to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Charles Dickens’ birth, producing a show that fused excerpts from Dickens’ novels with original music.

"This was a very 21st century event. The show was streamed to countries across the world via the Internet. Yet Harmer and Bingham’s artistry was to make those present at BMA House feel as though they were a 19th century audience enthralled and captivated for the first time by Dickens’ storytelling. We had the best of times."

This is a recording of the event held in London on 9 February 2012. You can also download a report about the evening written by Scott Sherriff.
