A very unique event will take place these coming weeks in St Leonards-on-Sea, East Sussex. The whole town will celebrate Jane Eyre in several ways:

Theatre

The House of the Heroine
Archer Lodge
21-23,25-28 February 8pm
2-7 March 8pm, 4 March 5.30pm matinee
Doors open 7.30pm for you to wander round the European rooms before the show begins.

Extraordinary theatre in a unique space
Jane hides behind a curtain in her Aunt's mansion with only Bewick's History of British Birds for comfort. She needs a nest. On the continent, Rochester's mistress, Céline Varens flies off. With original composition, live m
usic and a feast of visual delights, join us for extraordinary theatre in a unique space.
Foregrounding the avian imagery in Brontë's masterpiece, Jane Eyre, join us for a vibrant new production in tandem with Hastings Arts Forum's exhibition, The Jane Eyre Project. A free exhibition also in St Leonards on Sea, Hastings Arts Forum's artists will be working in the gallery over the two weeks, evolving the project.
Early booking essential. For 5.30pm school performances, please email explorers@explorethearch.com 
Exhibition:
Jane Eyre Project
21 Feb – 5 Mar
Hastings Art Forum
Private View: 24 Feb, 6.30 - 8.30pm

This exciting show has been developed in parallel with The Explore the Arch theatrical ‘House of the Heroine’ event taking place over the same time period.  The exhibition of artists’ individual interpretations of Jane Eyre will evolve over the two weeks through changing both the work and the format and will include artists working on site.
Jane Eyre will be on the school curriculum next year so as well as our general audience there will be group visits from schools and colleges. More details will be posted here as they emerge.
The exhibition will be multidisciplinary and mixed media. It will also be showing in both galleries.
And many more things:
Outdoor popup responses scattered through the town from community organisations, Black Winkle Arts, The Links Project, Transition Town Hastings, The Torn Pages Project, The Jane Eyre Letters Project & The Burtons' St Leonards Society, sponsored by Fastprint & Design Ltd and Martel Colour Print.
