“Getting Dressed with Jane” | 11am

Have you ever wondered what Elizabeth Bennet wore under her dress? Or how Emma fastened her gown? Who made their clothes and what fabrics did they use? Delve into the world of Georgian clothing and share Jane Austen’s love of fashion by spending an hour or so – “Getting Dressed with Jane”, from the underwear to the outerwear and beyond!
Cost:- Gold Coin donated to Compassionate Hearts On The Bellarine.

A Most Patient Persuasion | 2.30pm

Written with a mature eye for detail and a deep understanding of human nature this production reveals the author in the last year of her life maintaining a steady correspondence with her beloved family as always, whilst writing one of the most moving, personal portrayals of love and attachment. Superbly costumed and staged, this is simply, a “must see”, for all Jane Austen fans.
