South West Branch

The South West Branch of the Jane Austen Society was inaugurated in 2010. Based in Exeter, it serves Devon, Cornwall, Dorset and South Somerset, an area of the country well loved by - and with many links to - Jane Austen herself. Branch membership now exceeds 70.

The successful format of previous years will be continued. This consists of morning coffee, lecture, buffet lunch, and a second lecture in the afternoon. Having two lectures provides contrast and variety, while the lunch offers opportunities to socialise.

For further details about the Branch, and application for membership, please send your name and address to our Membership Secretary, whose contact details appear at the foot of the South West Events page.
