Join exhibition Curator, Clio O’Sullivan, for a fascinating tour of Chawton House’s latest exhibition A Costume of Sport. From the impressive pedigree of Jane Austen’s professional cricketing nephews to the typical sporting pursuits of the gentry, A Costume of Sport is a celebration of the sporting heritage held in the grounds over the centuries. Did Jane Austen play sport? The exhibition also considers the typical physical exercises enjoyed by women in the Regency period, and what they wore whilst doing it, from cricket and riding to sea bathing using horse-drawn machines.
