Costume exhibition in Bath

The Jane Austen Centre in Bath is housing an exhibition of costumes from some of the recent Austen films,including Miss Austen Regrets.

For anyone who's never been to the centre, it's well worth a visit at any time.

It houses a permanent exhibition which tells the story of Jane's experience in the city between 1801 and 1806 and the effect that living here had on her and her writing.

For this year only, the exhibition includes 'Costumes from ITV's Persuasion' featuring the dresses worn by Sally Hawins as Ann Elliot. The stunning costumes are the work of BAFTA award winner Andrea Galer.

'We are completely changing the feel of a large part of the exhibition,' said Centre Director David Baldock,' new lighting and props, sound effects and colourways will give our visitors an exhilarating experience. We are all looking forward to the transformation.'

The exhibition looks wonderful, so if you're anywhere near Bath, pay it a call!
