sitting-with-jane-sponsorsSitting With Jane is funded entirely through sponsorship from businesses and organisations that understand the importance of the project as a way to promote area, our heritage and to encourage future generations to appreciate both Jane Austen’s work and her global significance. They are all proud to be involved and help us celebrate Jane Austen’s life in this special year.

There are a wide range of businesses committed to Sitting with Jane. Some are interested in the branding and opportunity to connect with visitors, others want to be associated with a Festival Place Logohigh-profile project in the community they serve, and some want to help enable our special local charity to raise funds. If you would like to be involved, there are still limited opportunities available so please get in touch with Jane Staff at Destination Basingstoke.
