The afternoon will start with an accessible introduction to Jane Austen given by a university lecturer. It won't matter if you have never read a word of Jane Austen before, or you know her cannon by heart, as it will be tailored to whoever comes.

This will be followed by tea (both black and green – with cream – such as Jane herself kept locked from the servants and served herself) with Regency refreshments: fashionable newfangled sandwiches, artistic marchpane delicacies, Bath buns and much more. All served to the delightful strains of background music, played on the harp and muselar by an accomplished young lady, as Jane herself was required to do.

The climax of the day will be a professional performance of the one-woman show, Jane Austen at Home: a compilation of her own writings (including seldom-heard juvenilia as well as well-known and much-loved passages) telling her life story in her own inimitable and wonderfully witty words.
Other things to note
Bedford is a very easy (35 minute) train journey from St Pancras: the station is a few minutes' walk from Observatory House, and the bus stop (X5 bus) even closer. There is plenty of parking nearby.

I fell in love with Jane Austen as a teenager, before reading English Literature at Oxford, after which I trained as an actor and then became a writer. So I am passionate about her wonderful writings and delightful world. We live in a gorgeous Georgian house which we love to share, our daughter is an accomplished music scholar and harpist and my cousin teaches Austen at house parties around the country. Our son-in-law is a trained chef and one of my oldest friends is the director who compiled a play about Jane's life... so we are all longing to give you this wonderful Regency experience.

Tempat yang akan Anda datangi

The afternoon will take place in the historic Observatory House in Bedford, built as a family home in 1825 (named after the impressive Observatory erected in 1827) and still very much a family home today. Lovingly restored by its present owners Observatory House, with its open fires and candlelit rooms, its musical instruments and portraits on the walls, will transport you back to Jane's gentle world. But beware... you may never want to leave!
