Celebrated author Jane Austen is known for her novels which offer (often comical) reflections on society in the late 18th and early 19th century. Two centuries after her death, Jane’s novels remain timeless classics and her work has had a lasting influence on our own culture.
Discover the world of Jane’s childhood in Be Persuaded. This beautiful exhibition features rare and delicate Empire gowns, costumes and collectables from the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
Be Persuaded is presented by the Dressing Australia Museum of Costume and will be held at St Peters Cultural Heritage Centre from Saturday 8 February – Saturday 15 March.
