A Celebration of Jane Austen

Tell a friend:

6th February 2011 - 2pm

Venue: Loughborough Town Hall

Starring ROBERT POWELL and ELIZABETH GARVIE

with Christine Croshaw, piano and Clive Conway, flute

Respected film & TV actor Robert Powell and Elizabeth Garvie (who gave a memorable performance as Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice on BBC TV) bring you Jane Austen’s world…

‘For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours, and laugh at them in our turn.’   (Pride and Prejudice)

No writer, with the exception of Shakespeare, stands higher in public esteem and affection than Jane Austen.   This celebration is for those who have always loved her, and for those who would like to know more about the enigmatic and shadowy figure behind the popular image of bonnets, tea and gentility.

Jane Austen continues to fascinate us because she reveals human nature with all its delicious quirks and foibles.   From the rumbustious delights of her juvenile works to the extraordinary explosion of vitality in her last and uncompleted novel, Sanditon, we take you on a colourful and revealing journey through the life and works of this most paradoxical and bewitching author.
