It's Jane Austen's 242nd birthday and in this 200th anniversary year, you are invited to a rather special party, attended by Miss Austen herself!
The Mayor and Mayoress of Winchester and The Hampshire Regency Dancers welcome you to a Jane Austen Birthday Soirée in Abbey House. Join in some easy dances of the time which will be called and walked through beforehand to live music. Learn to flirt with your fan, fill in your dance card and come as your favourite Jane Austen character, but watch out for that devious Mr Wickham!
You are encouraged to come in Regency costume (which can be hired locally) or black tie. Your ticket includes a reception drink, the ball, a variety of delicious canapés and, of course, a piece of Jane's birthday cake!
