In honour of the occasion, entry on the door will be half price all day at both locations – or free if it is your birthday.

Jane Austen’s House Museum will be decorated for the season. There will be live music around the house and mulled wine on sale for our adult visitors to enjoy. Have a go at our festive family activities suitable for all ages and get in to the Christmas spirit!

A short walk away, Chawton House, or ‘The Great House’ as Jane knew it, will also be adorned with boughs of holly, there will be music performances and plenty of birthday cake.

Please note that Cantique will be performing a selection of Regency choral pieces at 11:30am and 1:30pm, including a rhyming recipe for Christmas pudding, written by Mrs Cassandra Austen.
