Jane Austen and London

Join us for a fascinating exploration of Jane Austen's London, presented by actor Angela Barlow.

Tuesday 21 June
11:00am — 12:00pm

‘Scene of Dissipation & Vice’

Jane writing to Cassandra, 23 August 1796

This lively illustrated talk investigates the importance of London to Jane Austen in her novels and in her life. Was it a ‘scene of Dissipation & Vice’, a place of ‘domestic happiness’, or a city of stimulus and freedom? Austen’s own words will reveal some answers…

Angela Barlow, in an extensive acting career, has appeared in theatre, television and radio in classic and contemporary drama, and in her own one-woman plays about Charlotte Brontë and Olga Chekhov. She now regularly writes and speaks about aspects of Jane Austen at literary events and for Austen groups around the UK and in the USA.
