Events of the Society and related events elsewhere.
'The Group meets four or five times a year. Previous meetings have included discussions of favourite passages and characters, viewings and discussions of film adaptations, lectures on Sanditon and Regency England, Eliza de Feuillide and Warren Hastings, the Hidden Autobiography in Jane Austen's novels, Folk Song of Jane Austen's period and the Pleasures of Collecting Austeniana. Recent meetings have included a strawberry tea with a discussion of "What if...?", a talk about Jane Austen's holidays, and an evening of music that Jane Austen would have known.'
'The Hampshire Group was established in May 2002 and by the end of its first year had already attracted over 100 members. We are fortunate in serving the county Jane Austen knew and loved best, where she was born, where almost all of her novels were written, and where she is buried. 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.'
'The Kent Branch has a varied programme of events which includes talks and lectures, visits and a summer "period" entertainment, with music, dancing or drama. There is an annual lunch or dinner in November, and a lively Discussion Group which meets twice a year.'
'The London Group of the Jane Austen Society now meets at 2.30 pm on four Saturdays in the year ... These meetings, of which at least one is free to members of the Group (all others are charged at cost), feature either a speaker or a speaker-led discussion, sometimes with videos to illustrate screen adaptations of the novels. Tea and biscuits are included. In addition, there is a full-day annual Group outing held on a Saturday in summer and a Birthday Lunch on a Saturday at the start of December.'
'Our annual events range from scholarly lectures and study days to informal and lively discussions.'
Hold about four meetings per year, usually either in Glasgow or Edinburgh.
Organize every few months a 'day conference with morning coffee, buffet lunch, afternoon tea and two lectures'.
