About 900 actors recreated scenes from novels of 19th century British author Charles Dickens in the two-day event.

DEVENTER – This year's Dickens festival in the northern town of Deventer has drawn 160,000 visitors, as many as last year.

Long queues formed a few times during the two-day event before people could enter the town's medieval district where some 900 actors and extras were recreating scenes from novels of 19th century British author Charles Dickens.

Among his best-known titles is A Christmas Carol, which he published in 1843.
