For obvious reasons linked to the coronavirus issue, very few events have been organised around the UK
at the immediate time. As soon as further details become available, they will appear on this page of the website.
For information on a broad range of other literary events (not necessarily linked to Jane Austen), consult the websites of the
Alliance of Literary Societies and the Royal Society of Literature, both of
which are included within our Other Links page.
