Sense and Sensibility at Sudley House

Article Featured Image

There’s nothing better than snuggling down to watch a film. Normally I do it on a rainy Sunday, with just a cup of tea and a bar of chocolate for company. However I am excited to hear that this Friday 5 August from 1 – 3.30pmSense and Sensibility starring Emma Thompson will be screened at Sudley House.

Sense and Sensibility was Jane Austen’s first novel and was published 200 years ago this year. The screening of the 1995 adaptation, directed by Ang Lee, will celebrate this anniversary but also the current exhibition at Sudley House, Costume Drama: Fashion from 1790 – 1850.

The exhibition displays examples of fashionable dress from Jane Austen’s era. What better way to watch a screen adaptation of a Jane Austen novel than to be in the company of dresses from her time!

There will be screenings of the film for the duration of the exhibition, so if you can't come on Friday it will screened on, Sunday 13 November 2011 and Friday 2 March 2012 from 1- 3.30pm.

There will also be screenings with subtitles on Sunday 25 September 2011, Friday 13 January 2012 and Friday 20 April 2012 from 1-3.30pm.
