What is the Jane Austen Festival?
Every September, hundreds of Jane Austen fans descend on the city of Bath, England, for one of the biggest gatherings of Regency reenactors and Jane Austen fans in the world. Lasting for 10 days, the annual event includes theatre, music, food, a ball, workshops, readings, dances and the famous Regency Promenade.
Not everyone dresses up at the Jane Austen Festival! A number of our regular attendees do, but it’s not necessary and you will enjoy admiring the work and effort that goes into some of the lovely outfits.
If you want to be the first to find out about the 2016 Jane Austen Festival, make sure you become a Friend. Festival Friends get access to early bird tickets and are able to pre-book select events before they go on sale.
Have the time of your life this September. Meet like-minded fans of Miss Austen and Regency mores and values and make friendships that will last.
