 Jane Austen first attended a Ball at the Basingstoke Assembly at the age of 17 and danced here regularly while the family lived at nearby Steventon.

Debbie Reavell is a member of the Friends of the Willis Museum, well-known for her interest in local history and as a leading champion of the Basingstoke story of Jane Austen. For this celebratory year, this talk will take us on a journey round the town as Jane knew it.
