Jane Austen blogger Sophie Andrews presented an afternoon of entertainment in words and music on the theme of Austen Heroine’s. Sophie was just 16 when she started her Austen fan blog, Laughing with Lizzie, and now has thousands of ‘Janeite’ followers from across the globe.
A reviewer and editor of Austen-related publications, audiobook narrator and ambassador for the Jane Austen Literacy Foundation, Sophie is also an accomplished amateur pianist.
Her entertainment featured piano pieces and readings from Austen novels. With a passion for all things Regency, she was excited to be contributing to the commemoration marking 200 years since Jane Austen’s death in 1817.
Guests also enjoyed a glass of bubbly and tea and cake.
