History Weekends 2019: Lucy Worsley

Lucy Worsley will be speaking about author Jane Austen’s story through the rooms, spaces possessions and places that mattered to her at our 2019 History Weekends in Winchester

BBC History Magazine will host two History Weekends in 2019, one in Winchester and one in Chester.

Talk: Jane Austen at Home


Winchester: Saturday 2 November, 20.00–21.00 


Talk synopsis: Lucy Worsley's illustrated talk takes a tour of the country to see where Jane Austen lived. It considers what home meant to Jane, telling Austen’s story through the rooms, spaces possessions and places which mattered to her. Dispelling the myth of the cynical lonely spinster, Lucy instead offers us a witty and passionate woman of her time, who refuses to settle for anything less than Mr Darcy.

Lucy Worsley.
