To celebrate the bi-centenary of its publication, the Friends of Brunswick Square present Emma200. Not to be confused for what is written on those tart cards you will also find in phone boxes nearby, it is a weekend festival of talks, performances, exhibitions in the leafy surroundings of Brunswick Square.
The lineup includes:
- Screening the 1996 film starring Gwyneth Paltrow
- A lecture from Austen scholar Professor John Mullan
- Staged reading of a theatrical adaptation
- Period music and dancing
- Comedy improvisation group Austentatious
It runs from Thursday 10 September to Sunday 13 September. More details can be found on the website.
