Friday 21st - Sunday 30th June 2024
Welcome to the Jane Austen Regency Week, a 10-day festival held in Alton, Chawton and Selborne in Hampshire (UK) each year. For 2024 we have added another day to our week of events. Details of this and all other events will be posted as soon as we have booked and confirmed speakers.
Tickets for the 2024 Jane Austen Regency Week will be available later this year - the ball tickets are already on sale. As ever, we will have a varied programme of walks, dancing, tours, talks and much more. This year we are adding a launch event on Friday 21st June - more details to follow. You can see programmes for past events going back to 2008 in the Archive section.
If you would like to wear your Regency attire to our events, please feel free to do so. Rest assured, you won't be the only person wearing costume. In fact, we actively encourage it.
We invite you to explore this site to find out about the Jane Austen Regency Week.
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.
