We invite you to the unveiling of the first ever bronze sculpture of Jane Austen, in Basingstoke on Tuesday 18 July.

The statue will be unveiled in Market Place, Basingstoke, RG21 7QD at 12pm. Local sculptor Adam Rood was commissioned to create the sculpture, which will represent Jane not only as a writer, but also as a strong-willed and independent character in her own right.

Join us for this momentous occasion on the bicentenary of Jane Austen's death.
