Do You Dance Mr Darcy?
A Christmas with Jane Austen
“Christmas goes out in fine style – with Twelfth night. It is a finish worthy of the time. Christmas day was the morning of the season’ New Year’s day the middle of it, or noon; Twelfth night is the night, brilliant with innumerable planets of Twelfth-cakes”.Leigh Hunt 1784-1859
Using opinions of the day, Austen family letters and excerpts from “Emma”, we get to experience a “Jane Austen” Christmas.
