Dickens on Screen Arguably the greatest British novelist of all time, the works of Charles Dickens have been adapted for film and television on many an occasion and, as a contribution to his 200th birthday celebrations, BFI Southbank is putting on a showcase of the many and famous Dickens stories that were translated onto the screen. Including classics such as a America-based Great Expectations with Robert De Niro, Gwyneth Paltrow and Anne Bancroft, a critically acclaimed adaptation of Hard Times, this time set in Portugal, and MGM/Selznick's A Tale of Two Cities, set during the French Revolution. Co-ordinated by Film London and The Charles Dickens Museum in partnership with the BFI, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to enjoy your favourite Dickens story as retold by those who were inspired by his work.
COMPETITION: LondonTown has teamed up with BFI Southbank and the Museum of London to offer you the chance to win a pair of tickets to one of the cinematic adaptations of his novels in February PLUS tickets to Dickens and London, the UK?s first major exhibition on the author for over 40 years. To stand a chance of winning, simply answer this question:
Which of the following is the odd one out? A) The Haunted House B) The Woman In White C) Barnaby Rudge
Send your answer with plus full contact details (name, address, email) and with 'Dickens' in the subject line to competitions@londontown.com by midday on 20th January. First one out of the hat wins - good luck!
