The spectacular Sitting With Jane BookBenches have transformed streets and parks over the summer into an accessible art gallery celebrating Jane Austen’s life in the area. Now they are being removed, but there will be one last opportunity for the public to see them all – and this time they will be all together under one roof at a special farewell event.

All 24 BookBenches will be on display at Milestones Museum for the weekend of the 9th and 10th September, and visitors to the museum will have chance to see all the unique, professionally painted BookBenches for one final time.

Sitting With Jane visitors can take advantage of free child entry (with a paying adult) for the weekend, otherwise normal entry charges will apply.

It will be a chance for anyone who missed out on any of the BookBenches to see them and to complete the app by entering the number codes and finding all the BookBenches among the exhibits at the museum.
