Jane Austen’s Virtual Birthday Tea Party

Join us to celebrate Jane Austen's birthday from the comfort of your own home!

Wednesday 16 December

‘This is quite the season indeed for friendly meetings’ – Emma

Jane Austen was born on Saturday 16 December 1775 – a bitterly cold winter’s night, 245 years ago.

This year, we will hold our birthday celebrations online. Join us on Zoom for a very special birthday party, from the comfort of your own home – wherever you are!

Ticket holders will be treated to music, talks and readings by special guests, games, a ‘best bonnet’ competition and other general silliness! Regency attire strongly encouraged!

For an extra special party experience, upgrade your ticket to include a fabulous goody bag with a packet of Jane Austen’s Breakfast Tea by Twinings and a beautiful tin of Jane Austen’s House Shortbread Biscuits, to enjoy during the event. (Only available in the UK)

This party will take place on Zoom on Wednesday 16th December at 8pm (UK). Please ensure you include a valid email address at checkout as your link to join the party will be sent by email one week before.

Bonnets at the ready!
