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.

Because these classes are limited to 15 per class, we have limited registrations so that you can only participate in 3 classes in total. So that we can place you in your preferred classes, we ask you to choose which classes you prefer, in order of preference, and then it will be first in, first served, to place people in classes. Once a class has been filled it will be closed, and your next class preference will be used.
