The Jane Austen Festival

Friday, September 9th, 2022 - Sunday, September 18th, 2022

Visit Bath during the Jane Austen Festival for an immersive Regency experience. Walk alongside 500 costumed Jane Austen fans in the spectacular, opening Grand Regency Costumed Promenade. The highlight of the festival for many, this record-breaking event beings at the Holburne Museum and continues across Pulteney Bridge, past many landmarks in central Bath. 

Throughout the rest of the festival, join other Jane Austen fans on guided walks and day trips, sit back and enjoy talks, music recitals and concerts or get hands on at workshops and dance classes. In addition to the programme of events, The Jane Austen Centre and Regency Tea Rooms will be open daily

During the festival, fans will also have a unique chance to see the only widely accepted depiction of Jane Austen outside London, when the sketch of the novelist by her sister Cassandra is generously lent to the Holburne Museum by the National Portrait Gallery.
