Dickens will be brought to Life at special events held this week and next.

Sutton Life Centre is to host special showings of an all-star production of Charles Dickens' David Copperfield tomorrow and next Friday.

The film, which features Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe and Downton Abbey's Maggie Smith is part of a season of Dickens-themed events put on by the Sutton Life Centre Friends' Group.

Last week the group hosted a talk about the world-famous author entitled the London of Charles Dickens which attracted around 60 people.

Councillor Graham Tope, chairman of the Sutton Life Centre Friends Group, said: "The Friends of the Life Centre do a great deal of work to put on community events that can be enjoyed across the ages. 

"This is a great opportunity for families to get together and enjoy a piece of classic British literature brought to life on the big screen."

Showings will start at 7pm and will cost £2 per person which also includes a soft drink and popcorn. To book tickets call the library on 020 8644 9696 or email
