The Jane Austen Festival officially opens with the world famous Regency Costumed Charity Promenade. The Promenade is a procession of over 500 people all in 18th Century costume and is a record breaking event. All sorts of people from all over the world participate, from the very young to the young at heart plus red coats, dancers and the official town crier.

All participants wear their own costumes, purchase and display a wristband (cost of 2019 wristband to be confirmed) to take part in the Promenade. The wristband includes free entry to the Promenader’s Fayre in the Guildhall from 12noon. Children under 16 are free but must be accompanied by a participating adult in COSTUME.

(£1 per wristband sold is donated to RUH Cancer Care Campaign)

Wristbands are not required to watch.
