Jane Austen Regency Week About Us

Welcome to the Jane Austen Regency Week, a 9-day festival held in Alton and Chawton in Hampshire (UK) each year. The 2018 festival is now over for another year - thank you to the many people who visited this year.

The dates for next year are Saturday 22nd - Sunday 30th June 2019. As ever, it will include the popular regulars including Alton Regency Day, Alton Regency Ball, talks, music, walks, tours and more.

We invite you to explore this site to find out about the Jane Austen Regency Week and we hope to see you in 2019.

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.

The Jane Austen Regency Week is run on a non-commercial basis by a group of volunteers and participating organisations. It is funded through ticket sales, a grant from Alton Town Council, Sponsors and advertising.

HugoFox are a Hampshire-based company who very kindly provide us with this website for free as part of their community provision. They also offer websites for local businesses for a fee, but all their websites allow users to advertise events, jobs, news and offers.
