“The undisputed Queen of TV history” Guardian 2015

Dr Lucy Worsley is passionate about making history engaging to the widest possible audience. Her new biography of Jane Austen will be published in May next year and takes at new look at Jane Austen’s life from the perspective of her bi-centenary. It considers what home meant to Jane, and tell the story through the rooms, spaces, possessions and places which mattered to her.

Dispelling the myth of the cynical, lonely spinster Lucy instead offers us a witty and passionate woman of her time, who refused to settle for anything less than Mr Darcy.

Lucy is Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces, she is an hugely popular writer, broadcaster and speaker, her talks in theatres and festivals are always well attended and we are delighted to be able to exclusively present this new show to accompany the launch of her new biography of Jane Austen.
