Regency Week

Jane Austen Regency Week

Jane Austen Regency Week is a 9-day festival held in Alton and Chawton in Hampshire (UK) each year. The 2018 festival is now finalised and tickets are on sale.

The dates are 16th - 24th June 2018 and the events will include Regency Day, Regency Ball, talks, singing, walks, Playford dancing, house and garden tours, a quilting workshop, supper and music.

The Jane Austen Regency Week celebrates both our local internationally-acclaimed writer, and a very interesting period of history, encouraging people to explore their cultural heritage.

The Jane Austen Regency Week started as a single event in 2005, then it grew to a weekend. Finally, in 2008, it launched with its current name and covered a whole week of individual events. It continues to grow and develop, encouraging Jane Austen devotees to come from far and wide to see our picturesque corner of Hampshire.
