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.

Limited release of 50 discount earlybird tickets to JAFA 2015

Special Notice: On 20 September we are releasing 50 discount earlybird season tickets to Jane Austen Festival Australia, 10-12 April 2015. Yes, for just $150 ($50 less than last year's earlybird offer) you will get entry to the whole festival from Friday morning through to early Sunday evening. This offer goes to Jane Austen Festival Friends, attendees of the 19th Century Retreat at Yarrangobilly, attendees of the Time Travellers Spring Ball on Saturday night first, and then will be offered to the general public a week later. Become a friend or purchase a ticket to the ball at http://edhda-events.eventbrite.com.au/ Once these tickets are sold prices go up to $195.

JAFA 2015 will be where we’ve dreamt of having it since its inception—in Canberra’s historic Albert Hall. There’ll be a dozen dance workshops covering every aspect of the art and three 4 hour balls (a Georgian evening, a Battle of Waterloo ball and a cotillion ball) at which the Earthly Delights players will be joined by the stand-out entertainer Charlotte Kerr, the top wind trio Aeolus and an exciting new theatre piece, Mr Bennet's Bride. There’ll also be horse and carriage rides, costumed promenades, sewing workshops, historic fashion displays, archery, Jane Austen's Men Symposium, a Waterloo Symposium—and the spectacle of hundreds of participants in splendid regency dress.
