All Sun Jester's talks and entertainments aim to enlighten, divert and amuse audiences of all sizes and ages.

In the mid-19th century, many of London’s poorest inhabitants earned their living on the streets of the capital, by legal and sometimes not-so-legal means. From Crossing Sweepers to Costermongers, we introduce some of the more colourful characters of Victorian London, many of whom may have inspired the stories of Dickens.
