Austen Wednesdays

Welcome to Austen Wednesdays - a new digital programme of talks and in conversation events from Jane Austen's House!

Wednesday 28 October

We’re very excited to share this new series with you! Austen Wednesday events are monthly and premiere on our YouTube channel. New events will be announced on our social media channels and listed here each month so watch this space and subscribe to our YouTube channel to ensure you don’t miss out! The events are free but we welcome donations to help us preserve Jane Austen’s home and continue to share her legacy.

Our next Austen Wednesdays event premieres at 8pm (UK Time) on Wednesday 28th October!

This month, we’re delighted to welcome dress historian, curator and archaeologist Hilary Davidson whose reconstruction of Jane Austen’s pelisse coat led to her book Dress in the Age of Jane Austen: Regency Fashion. 

Subscribe to our YouTube channel to ensure you don’t miss out! 

Hilary Davidson was curator of fashion and decorative arts at the Museum of London and has lectured and taught extensively in her field, including presenting on the BBC documentary Pride & Prejudice: Having a Ball. For further information, visit

Our first Austen Wednesdays event aired on 30th September.  Watch it again here.
