Our members are also particularly well placed to attend the Society's annual meeting in Chawton each July and to benefit from other Jane Austen events which find a natural location in the county.'

However, with a membership that is approximately 50% Japanese, we also have events which focus on aspects of British life and provide opportunities to get to know the UK better. The format of events is as varied as the content: lectures and seminars sit alongside gallery visits, film screenings, pub nights and formal dinners.' Arrangements vary: check details - including whether need to be a member of the Society to attend a specific event.
