The Jane Austen Hampshire Group was started in 2002 originally as the Jane Austen
Society Hampshire Branch, but as from 1 January 2008 it became the Jane Austen Hampshire Group. The Group has the
great advantage of serving the county Jane Austen knew and loved best, where she was born, where her novels were written,
and where she died.
Our program usually includes an Annual General Meeting in May, when we have an outside speaker. We also have up to four
events throughout the year that may include outings, talks, discussions and other social events related to the Life and
Times of Jane Austen.
In recent years we have met for a lunch to celebrate Jane Austen's Birthday in December.
We publish a Newsletter twice a year, and we have published 'Occasional Papers' - articles of particular interest - in the
form of a booklet.
We are a friendly group and have a membership of more than 100. Our subscription costs we have managed to hold at £5 per
person, or £8 for two people at the same address. Many of our members (not all) receive their Newsletter via e-mail, and
we aim for our events to be self-financing to enable us to maintain the subscription rates.
