Join ‘Mr Wickham’ and the Regency Rejigged dancers for a celebration of all things Austen, marking 200 years since the author’s death in 1817.

 

Dashing actor Adrian Lukis, who played the villainous army officer Mr Wickham in the 1995 television adaptation of Pride and Prejudice (the one with Colin Firth as Darcy and ‘that’ scene with the wet shirt) will chat about his experiences and career with Huddersfield’s Jane Austen expert, Catherine Curzon. Followed by a display of dances from Jane Austen’s era by Regency Rejigged. Audience members are welcome to come in period dress.

 

Refreshments and cake will be on sale to raise funds for the Friends of Marsden Library.
