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 anniversary of Ruskin’s birthday (February 8) is marked each year with a celebratory dinner and lecture, a revival of a tradition established in 1932 by an earlier Ruskin Society.'
