Jaunt with Jane is a Jane Austen themed weekend held in Lyme Regis annually. This coming year the event will be held in 4-7 November 2016.
Jaunt with Jane is a fully loaded weekend of fun. Experience the world of Regency Lyme Regis & feel as Jane Austen did with jolly jaunts about town & strolls over the sunlit clifftops. Lyme Regis is a truly breathtaking place. There really is nothing like walking along the Cobb Harbour, feeling the breeze slowly sweeping through your hair & rustling your skirts, just as Jane Austen would have done & Jaunt with Jane provides a fabulous opportunity to do just this!
Enjoy the wonderment of fine food & dance, good company & even watch the sun bath the shoreline as it rises over the highest point on the south coast – the gilt-crested Golden Cap. Enjoy activities that Jane Austen would have adored but never had opportunity such as meet Diana Shervington – a direct descendent of Jane Austen’s brother who also grew up at Chawton House! Diana is a rather interesting lady, with a fabulously expressive voice & exclamatory tone, whose life story, stories about Jane Austen & display of Jane’s belongings will leave you absolutely enthralled.
If you’re feeling like a break then this is the perfect restorative tonic for you! When Captain Wentworth first sees Anne Elliot after 8 years’ absence, he believes that she has lost her bloom, but a few days in Lyme Regis restores Anne’s colour & they are once again together.
Let the restorative tonic of re-enactng Regency Lyme give you a bloom.
Whether watching the wondrous crashigng waves, or watching the patter of the seabirds
The rolling notes of the Oyster catchers blee, blee, blee roll in the air, poising for a moment, then rolling into the distance. Schvwee schvee, shoowoosh….schvwee schvee, shoowoosh….Almost as though they are competing with the catchers, the waves suddenly jump out, silencing the seabirds with their sound.
