JANE AUSTEN WINTER FESTIVAL
LOUIS JOEL ARTS AND COMMUNITY CENTRE, ALTONA, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA
20th - 31st July 2019
The Jane Austen Winter Festival celebrates the life and times of Jane Austen and raises money for the Jane Austen Literacy Foundation. Join Caroline Jane Knight, the last Austen descendant to grow up at Chawton House (in the South of England) on the ancestral estate where Jane herself lived and wrote.
Our world class speakers will explore Austen’s writing, the fashion of the era and the 18th Century laws that governed Jane’s life and the characters in her novels. Join the workshops in Regency style cooking and crafts and hear about the traditions Jane and her family enjoyed at Christmas.
