It’s Jane Austen Festival Time in Bath!

13914080I love Bath at any time of the year (and I’ve been there in every season!), but there’s something incredibly special for me about September in the city.

I’m not sure if it’s the autumnal light and the way it bathes the natural stone with such warmth, whether it’s the gold and russet leaves starting to tumble in Henrietta Park, making a crisp nest beneath the majestic trees, or whether it’s the influx of eager fans arriving from all over the world for ten days of indulgence in all things Austen!

Whatever the reason, I’m incredibly excited to be returning to my favourite English city tomorrow for several days, and reconnecting with like-minded friends who are set on enjoying everything the Festival has to offer, from promenades to bonnet making, musical recitals to comedy walks, and dances to presentations on a vast range of entertaining subjects.

This year’s full programme can be found on the Festival website here, and it’s never too late to decide to come along and join in the fun!

Some of the ‘extras’ in our book!

What makes this year (my 6th at the Festival!) particularly special, of course, is that now I will be walking in the footsteps of not only Jane Austen, but also the characters from our book who accompany her on her journey through The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen.  In fact, I’m going to be looking for Jane and her new friends everywhere I go!

Ada and I spent over a year ‘living’ at the Jane Austen Festival in Bath as we wrote the book. We have walked the streets daily, lived and breathed the city and the Festival (despite one of us being in Switzerland and the other in California!), and our characters have become so real to us as they laughed, ate*, chatted,  occasionally freaked out and even – a little bit – fell in love along the way!

(* As Ada wrote earlier this week on our Blog, Tabby Cow, with our book at your side, you can learn How to Eat your Way Thru Bath!)

So I am going back excited as always to be there at this special time of year, but I’m also just beginning to realise how melancholy it will be that our characters won’t be there too!

Or will they…
