Jane Austen Regency Week
Welcome to the Jane Austen Regency Week, a 9-day festival held in Alton and Chawton in Hampshire (UK) each year. Tickets are now on sale from the box office at Alton Community Centre +44 (0)1420 85057.
The festival dates are Saturday 20th - Sunday 28th June 2020. The 34 events include the popular regulars such as Alton Regency Day and the Alton Regency Ball, as well as special talks, workshops, discussions, tours and a lot more besides. And let's not forget the cream teas and gin (not at the same time!). This year there is also the introduction of a minibus service on the Friday so that you can get to and from Selborne and Chawton without having to take your car.
We invite you to explore this site to find out about the Jane Austen Regency Week and we look forward to welcoming you to Alton, Chawton and Selborne in 2020.
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 is run on a non-commercial basis by a group of volunteers and participating organisations. It is funded through ticket sales, sponsorship and advertising.
In 2020 we are being sponsored by 'Austen Heritage' and Caroline Jane Knight. For more information, please see the Sponsors page of this website.
