The Jane Austen Regency Week celebrates both the local internationally-acclaimed writer, and a very interesting period of history, encouraging people to explore their cultural heritage.

The event started as a single event in 2005, then it grew to a weekend. Finally, in 2008, it launched with its current name and covered a whole week of individual events. It continues to grow and develop, encouraging Jane Austen devotees to come from far and wide to see this picturesque corner of Hampshire.The Jane Austen Regency Week is run on a non-commercial basis by a group of volunteers and participating organisations. It is funded through ticket sales, a grant from Alton Town Council, Sponsors and advertising.
