Last chance for earlybird tickets to the Jane Austen Festival

By johnboy - 16 January 2009 25

As a straight man it’s difficult to express just how little interest I have in Jane Austen (if you think you’re a straight man, but your eyes lit up at the headline, I’ve got some bad news for you).

But for our large readership of non-straight men it’s worth noting that the earlybird season tickets to the Canberra Jane Austen Festival run out on 25 January and with them the chance to save $55.

If you’re just dieing to know more about fashion, etiquette, cooking, bonnets, dance, games, and whatnot from the British Regency period then this is the gig for you. Also lots and lots of Austen.

What’s Your opinion?

I’m going to the next one – this year’s festival was a blast. So many cute “straight” guys, too. They’ve moved the website to http://www.janeaustenfestival.com.au . There’s even a Pride & Prejudice Ball this Saturday night in Reid.

I’m interested in going, Bells!

The only true great English novel is The Snow Goose by Paul Gallico. 😉

What’s a Jane Austen -esque way to top myself ratehr than going to this?

I read Middlemarch when I was doing history at uni, and yes, it is a great book due to it’s representation of the era.

It’s still boring though.
