Little-known fact about Jane #6

In autumn 2010, the Walt Disney corporation opens The Jane Austen Experience on a 50-acre site on the outskirts of Bath. Visitors are greeted by a 12ft high Jane Austen, dressed in period costume. Jane leads them into The Ballroom, where they can watch Jane dancing to a traditional Regency rhythm with a 15ft high Mr Darcy. Other top exhibits in The Jane Austen Experience include Mansfield Safari Park and a fully automated camping area, Tents and Tentsability. The Austen Arena is proud to present the new musical Emmagination! five times a day, with exclusive lyrics by Sir Tim Rice. There is also a choice of six restaurants, including the awardwinning Fried and Pre-Juiced Dishes.
