Jane Austen Festival

Along with being famous for its ancient Roman ruins, the town of Bath, England, is also known as the home of renowned English novelist Jane Austen (1775–1817). Since 2001, Austen aficionados have converged on Bath for over a week to celebrate with music, walking tours, films, and the famous Regency Promenade, in which a large group in period costume parades the Georgian terraces of Bath. Other well-attended events are workshops, lectures, and readings, which often reference Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, two Austen novels mainly set in Bath. Discuss
