Jane Austen Heritage Dinner

Join Jane Austen’s family for a Regency inspired dinner at their ancestral home.

A letter from Jane’s fifth niece to you! She invites you for an amazing event and you can enjoy either in person or see what you are going to miss. Below you will find delicious-looking pictures of delicious-looking dishes. If you can’t make it this year there is always hope it happens again next year.

“You are invited to join my family for dinner at Jane Austen’s ‘Great House’, owned by Jane’s brother and my 4th great grandfather Edward Austen Knight.

I have created a menu using recipes and flavours from my family’s 18th century cookbook. Each dish is inspired by the food eaten by Jane herself and dishes mentioned in her novels and letters.

Sit at the same table as Jane Austen and enjoy a private viewing of family heirlooms not on show to the public.

I will be your host for the evening with my parents Jeremy and Carol Knight, and my brother, Paul Edward Knight.”

Caroline Jane Knight, Jane Austen’s fifth great niece
