Jane Austen


This coming week the literary world will be alight, commemorating the 200th anniversary of author Jane Austen’s death. The UGT is proud to celebrate the occasion with an afternoon of enlightenment and entertainment.

At 2pm, UGT patron Robert Milnes will give a talk about Jane Austen’s life, her books and their critical reception and hints about reading texts that are 200 years old in the present day. There will be time for questions and discussion.

Afternoon tea follows at 3.30pm.

At 4pm, the very first film adaption to be made of a Jane Austen novel will be shown. Pride and Prejudice, filmed in 1940, starred Greer Garson and Laurence Olivier.
