Join us as we celebrate the culmination of our Heritage Lottery Funded project, unveiling our spectacular community quilt, created by Austen fans from across the world including America, Brazil and Pakistan. Quilt designer Elizabeth Betts and Sue Dell, Austen Quilt researcher, will be on-site throughout the day to answer your questions and talk about this truly international community project. 

Museum volunteers will also be on-hand to share discoveries made when cataloguing previously forgotten artefacts discovered in the garden over the past twenty years. There will also be the opportunity to handle some of these items including ceramic fragments and clay pipes.
