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.

Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy requests the pleasure of your company at a Picnic at Pemberley. The morning festivities will commence at 9.30am and will include a guided house tour, battledore & shuttlecock, croquet and other diverting pastimes - including some dancing and a promenade.

A private coach has been booked to take you to Lanyon Homestead where you will received a guided tour through the historic homestead and grounds. 

The Lanyon Cafe will open especially for us, so you can purchase hot teas, coffee and delicious food from 10am or bring your own picnic basket and spread your rug on the Apricot Lawn below the homestead. 

(NB. The house tour is included in your festival ticket but the coach trip (from St Johns Church at 9am) is an extra $40 p/p. You are welcome to drive to Lanyon in your own car.)
Tickets are on sale now.
