Spa fever has gripped Southampton, royalty, artists and naval officers are flocking to the town to take the waters and indulge in sea bathing. Mr Martin is keen that his baths and cures are endorsed by the leaders of society, and has enrolled the help of the Austen ladies to promote the health-giving benefits of ‘taking the flounce’.

Join the Sarah Siddons Fan Club Theatre Group for a theatrical perambulation around the old spa town as they bring to life the friends, family and fishy tales of the Austens in Southampton.

This is part of the Southampton Jane Austen Festival - The Stinking Fish of Southampton.

We acknowledge the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund.
