What we're about

Calling all Janeites in London & nearby. Do you long to meet others who know their barouche box from their high perch phaetons? Do you wish others would shoot back "...but to make sport for our neighbours, and laugh at them in our turn" when you throw out "For what do we live..."? If so join this group today!

We usually meet once per month & have so far discussed all the novels. Where to go next will be a group decision, so stay tuned!

I'd love suggestions/ideas from others who love Jane Austen as much as I do.

New Janeites welcome!

Austentatious at the Arts Theatre

Arts Theatre

Please join us to watch Austentatious at the Arts Theatre.

The all-star Austentatious cast improvise a hilarious new Jane Austen novel every night! Inspired entirely by a title from the audience and performed in period costume with live musical accompaniment - it’s a riotous, razor-sharp show where swooning is guaranteed.

We will meet shortly before the event and have some drinks at the theatre. The play starts at 7.30pm, we are meeting inside (or maybe outside) the theatre at 7pm (depending on the weather and entry time). A range of ticket prices are available, so please book yours as soon as you can to get a great seat and view! Core members of the group are trying to get tickets for Row H (Monday 5 December), so please join us if you can/want! :) Looking forward to meeting you in person and enjoying the play.
