Jane Austen 200 – The Mysterious Miss Austen

ed: I should create a post with a list of all the Jane Austen exhibits happening in UK this year, win a zillion dollars and take oneself across the pond to go check them out (and visit friends), but alas.


If you happen to find yourself in the city of Winchester, UK between May 13, 2017 and July 24, 2017 you may want to check out Jane 200 – The Mysterious Miss Austen.

From the website:

This exhibition will explore Jane’s life and work and her relationship to Hampshire. The exhibition which is in partnership with Jane Austen’s House Museum, will include the HCT pelisse coat which is the only garment in the world with provenance that can traced back to Jane. It will also include first editions of her work, personal letters and portraits as well as loans from national institutions and private lenders including the National Portrait Gallery.


Other than hours, cost, and the above bit of press release, there isn’t much listed on the exhibition’s page. However! The exhibition is part of Hampshire’s Jane 200 – a year long celebration of Miss Austen that includes exhibitions, talks, walks, writing competitions and performances across the county, so check the site for more info!
