It's a small world!

We all had a delightful surprise when big Issue vendor Dave & Dickens's great-great-granddaughter Marion met at the opening of our current special exhibition Restless Shadow.

Marion explained: “Dave and I met some years ago at Hammersmith Tesco where I do my regular shopping.... Meeting him in the museum was an unexpected and delightful moment.” Restless Shadow is in partnership with #thebigissuefoundation and #Fashion&;TextileChildren'sTrust!

Opening today new special exhibition Restless Shadow: Dickens the campaigner!

Restless Shadow explores Dickens’s lesser known activities as a social reform campaigner. Charles Dickens addressed social ills in his fiction but was also a journalist and activist who boldly and imaginatively campaigned to improve the lives of the most desperate and overlooked in #Victorian society.
