Society Events 2021

The Society normally organises three events during the course of the year:

(1) a Study Day, comprising four lectures on subjects related to the life, works and times of Jane Austen.
(2) our Annual General Meeting and afternoon lecture, held in July at Chawton House Museum.
(3) a three-day Annual Conference, comprising a combination of lectures and outings to venues linked to Jane Austen or the Regency period.

For reasons linked to the current Coronavirus issue, the Study Day and the Annual General Meeting in Chawton have been cancelled for the current year. However, an on-line version of the AGM will now take place on Saturday 10 July. Full details from the link in the left-hand column.

However, in view of the recent easing of the Coronavirus problems, the Annual Conference will now take place in York from 23rd to 26th September as originally planned. Full details of this event are also displayed in the separate link in the left-hand column.

Society members are given initial priority for each of these events, although non-members are welcome to attend. Further information will be displayed on the website via the additional links on the left-hand side of this screen nearer each respective date.
