21-23 April 2017
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.

Australians filmed in Bath...
Jane Austen Festival Australia organisers, John and Aylwen Gardiner-Garden attended the Jane Austen Festival in Bath this year and were filmed at the beginning of this video. It was a wonderful experience, and John was invited to teach a regency dance workshop in the festival program.
