Jane Austen Festival


8 – 17 September 2017

Experience the biggest Jane Austen Festival in the world

This year marks the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death and in honour of this, and the new Jane Austen £10 note, the 2017 festival will be bigger than ever before.

Opening with the world-record setting Regency Consumed Promenade, there will be plenty of opportunities to wear Austen-era costumes around the city including the famous masked ball held in the Roman Baths, and the Pump Rooms on the final day of the Festival.

The Jane Austen Festival has over 80 events to take part in such as workshops, readings, talks, concerts and theatre performances. Taste the specially brewed limited edition Jane Austen 200 beer from the Bath Brew House.

Mark your calendars and take the train to Bath with GWR. This really isn’t one to be missed.

Getting there and back

Travel with GWR to Bath Spa station. The festival locations are spread throughout the city, so most are walkable from the station.
