**SOLD OUT** Jane Austen’s Virtual Birthday Party

Join us online for a fabulous birthday celebration that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home!

Thursday 16 December
8:00pm — 9:00pm

‘This is quite the season indeed for friendly meetings’


Jane Austen was born on Saturday 16 December 1775 – a bitterly cold winter’s night, 246 years ago.

After the success of last year’s virtual birthday party when we celebrated with fans across the globe, we will once again hold our birthday celebrations online.  Join us on Zoom for another very special birthday party, from the comfort of your own home – wherever you are!

Party guests will be treated to fabulous music, fascinating talks, beautiful readings and all sorts of fun and games in the spirit of the Austen family. Featuring some very special guests and lots of audience interaction!

Regency attire strongly encouraged!
