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 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.

We invite you to explore this site to find out about the Jane Austen Regency Week and we hope to see you in 2018.

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, grants from Alton Town Council and East Hampshire District Council, Sponsors and advertising.

HugoFox 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. They are based in Whitchurch in Hampshire, so whilst this website is template-driven, alterations and corrections are considered by the operating company.
