Jane Austen Festival 2020 – Cancellation
It is with a heavy heart that because of the ongoing uncertainty due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have had no choice but to cancel the 2020 Jane Austen Festival in Bath.
It was not an easy decision to make, but we feel it is the right one when considering how many loyal supporters we have attending from all over the world.
We hope everyone is staying safe at home, and look forward to welcoming everyone back to Bath for the Jane Austen Festival in 2021.
The dates for the 2021 Jane Austen Festival are Friday 10th September to Sunday 19th September.
The below is information previously released about the 2020 Festival. This is a brief outline of what would have taken place this September, so we hope to welcome you back with a similar programme of events in 2021.
