2016 Jane Austen Festival- Bare Knuckle Boxing Demonstration

Period Fisticuffs at the 8th Annual Jane Austen Festival!


MOVE OVER, Darcy and Wentworth! SCATTER, all you milksop parsons and do-good reformers!! The BRUMMAGEM TRUMP is returning to Locust Grove!!! The Trump has not fought since that awful contest with the Acasta BIG GUN in the summer of ‘13, when, in an EPIC AFFRAY, both bruisers were reduced to red ruin and the surgeon’s care. But a late incident at THE FIVE’S COURT has induced the Trump, as it would any true man of spirit, to sign the articles and resume tough training! To be brief, the Trump, having been called “a beaten dog, a shattered hulk,” and several other choice epithets by the IRISH CHAMPION, Jem Doggerty, will meet said Doggerty on the Grove grounds, in midsummer, determined to chastise the Hibernian in the approved English manner. Mark your calendars ladies and gentlemen of the Fancy, for what promises to be an exhibition of true manliness between two out-and-outers!
