St George’s Day was celebrated with a Jane Austen-themed evening this week.
The Navestock Village Society enjoyed supper at Fane Hall, in Kelvedon Hatch, while member Judith Flynn read out a self-penned poem about Pride and Prejudice. The group also performed its own take on the story, Pride and Prunejuice.
Roy Tyzack, from the group, wrote the play and said of it: “I changed the names of the characters to give it a comic twist. Mr Darcy became Mr Dicey and Miss Lucas and Mr Collins became Miss Mucus and Mr Colic. It seemed to go down very well.
“As with all June Austen stories, it ended with everyone getting married and living happily ever after.”
