Spinster, matron, mother, widow, Jane Austen's novels may have delightful young heroines, but they are also rich with rather older characters who now have the spotlight in this unique costumed presentation celebrating old maids and matriarchs, from Miss Bates to Lady Catherine de Bourgh.

History Wardrobe presents lively readings from Austen's novels are interspersed with insights into the realities of life for women past their first blush of youth in Regency England; not forgetting praise for literature's most marvellous spinster - Jane Austen herself.

Join us for this unique histroic presentation in the intimate setting of Bramall's Great Hall. You'll love it.

This event is aimed at adults 16+.

Seating is unreserved.
