2020 Austen Con
- Sat Nov 07 2020
One of England’s most beloved novelists, Jane Austen was born in 1775 and wrote from a young age, initially to amuse her family. Her six major novels, of which Pride and Prejudice is probably the best known, are set amongst the British landed gentry and lauded worldwide for their wit, romance, and social commentary.
Join in a whole day of Jane Austen and Regency-era related events and activities, to celebrate lots of different aspects of Jane Austen's work and our appreciation of it.
This year the event will be run entirely online and participants can can partake in workshops from Bonnet-making and painting, to dancing and baking, with a wonderful array of guest presenters and expert enthusiasts. They are also invited to join lively discussions and watch some of Melbourne’s finest arts companies bring Austen’s words to life.
Running prior to the day, and as a part of Austen Con, 24 Carrot Productions also presents a limited season of their new online show Introduction to Emma. Full information and booking for this season is available here.
