12-14 April 2019

Jane Austen Festival Australia is an annual celebration in Canberra where Austen and Napoleonic fans from all over Australia come and indulge themselves in everything Regency - including dancing, music, food, games, archery, fencing, theatre, promenades, grand balls, talks, workshops, costumes and books. This festival is now a regular part of the ACT Heritage Festival, Australian Heritage Week and is supported by the ACT Government, the Australian Costumers Guild and the Earthly Delights Historic Dance Academy. Since its inception in 2008 this little festival has blossomed into one of the most delightful four days anyone could experience each April in an old and beautiful part of Canberra, the Federal capital of Australia.

Requesting your company ... for an assembly 200 years ago

Dear friends,

After three amazing days of Victorian-era dance, costume and
entertainment, and making new interstate and overseas friends, we are
about to wind back the clock to the Regency era.

Our annual Pride & Prejudice ball will be held at St. John's Church
Hall, Reid, 7:30 to 11:30pm, on Saturday 17 October - just $16 online
at http://www.earthlydelights.com.au or $20 at door (children under 15
half price), includes refreshments and potluck supper.

It will be like walking into a Jane Austen novel ...

As the ball will be a big night, there will be no Sunday dance class
the next day, but the following Sunday 23 October we will start a few
weeks of dances from a broad 450-year period building up to our 21
November "Time Travellers' Ball".

Looking forward to meeting you at the ball,

Aylwen Garden
