In the 200 years since Jane Austen’s classic, Emma, was published in December 1815, it has become one of the best loved novels of all time. To celebrate the bi-centenary of its publication the Friends of Brunswick Square, presents Emma 200, a weekend mini-festival in the leafy surroundings of Brunswick Square. Austen scholar Professor John Mullan from KQ partner, UCL, will be opening the festival on Thursday 10th September with a talk on ‘Emma and Jane Austen’s London’.
From a screening of the 1996 film starring Gwyneth Paltrow a staged reading of a theatrical adaptation, to period music and dancing, modern improv group Austentatious, and a free Saturday of family activities and entertainment, Emma 200 has a varied programme for all.
