Royal Pavilion

An Evening with Jane Austen

Spend a magical evening in the company of Jane Austen’s most memorable characters, from the comic absurdity of the Dashwoods, to the heartfelt passion of Wentworth and Anne — not to mention the charming duplicity of the notorious Mr. Wickham.

Set in the magnificent surroundings of the Royal Pavilion’s Music Room the evening consists of duologues performed by actors Caroline Langrishe (Judge John Deed, Lovejoy) and Adrian Lukis (Mr Wickham in the BBC production of Pride and Prejudice, Peak Practice) alongside Regency era musical entertainment from harpist Camilla Pay and soprano Rosie Lomas.

Author Catherine Curzon will introduce the performance and will sign copies of her book, Life in the Georgian Court, during the interval.
