Characters from the pages of Charles Dickens' stories will come to life and parade through the snow-laden streets this weekend.
Rochester will become a Victorian festive scene as the annual Dickensian Christmas Festival takes to the streets on Saturday, December 7 and Sunday, December 8.
The scene will hopefully be more A Christmas Carol than Hard Times when there will be a feast of Victorian treats with a parade of costumed characters and the festive market in Rochester Castle Gardens - plus guaranteed snowfall.
Highlights include street performers, an open air carol concert and a candlelit procession.
The popular market will feature stalls packed with unique gifts and stocking fillers with festive music playing.
Alongside it, there will be a Bavarian food village and a funfair with live entertainment.
It is on site from Friday, December 6 to Sunday, December 8.
On Fridays rides cost £1 and activities are also half price.
