Why not visit Worthing & Museum and Art Gallery
The event, held in association with Community First and the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), runs from 23 May to 7 June 2015 at the Georgian Room in the Chatsworth Hotel, Steyne Gardens. Jane Austen stayed in Worthing for several months in the autumn and winter of 1805, and later used her experiences as the background for her final novel, Sanditon, which remained unfinished at her death in 1817. There is to be a free family day, with arts and crafts; children’s tours; a Georgian trio of musicians; talks about Jane Austen’s Worthing; and a Regency dance display. An Indian-themed evening will include a special screening of Bride & Prejudice, the Bollywood version of Jane Austen’s great novel, before which there will be a snack buffet of Indian food. Visitors to the exhibition will also have the opportunity to experience Worthing as the author herself would have done, seated in a horse-drawn carriage. For those that prefer to keep their feet firmly on the ground, two guided walks will take place – one through the centre of the town and the other in Broadwater, which was the model for “Old Sanditon” in Jane Austen’s novel.
