DateSaturday 17th June 2017 to Monday 8th January 2018
DescriptionA new display at the Royal Pavilion in Brighton will explore Jane Austen's relationship with coastal towns and life in Brighton during her time, to mark the bicentenary of her death. Jane Austen by the Sea will look at the seaside context of Austen's plots and paint a picture of the leading resort of Brighton in the early 1800s, when it was a fashionable 'watering place' featured in novels like Pride and Prejudice. It will investigate such themes as fashionable places and pastimes, Jane Austen's own experiences by the sea, coastal resorts in her work and letters, seaside love and marriage, sailors and soldiers by the sea and Austen's relationship with the Brighton-based Prince Regent and his household. Free with Royal Pavilion admission, residents' discount, Members free.
