Jane Austen 200

Hampshire Cultural Trusts’ big theme exhibition for 2017 is entitled Jane Austen 200, A Life in Hampshire, marking the 200th anniversary of Jane’s death.  Jane Austen is the most widely recognised literary figure in the world, after Shakespeare and the Trust wanted to make the 200 anniversary celebrations for Jane Austen as high profile as they were for Shakespeare’s 400 anniversary. As part of this project, the Hampshire Cultural Trust needed a website to promote the exhibition.

The brief

  • To provide a comprehensive and authoritative source of information for activity taking place throughout Jane Austen 200
  • To be the primary source of information for tourist related product itineraries for Jane Austen 200
  • To be a content rich and engaging site with international appeal (particularly USA)
  • To become the definitive Jane Austen information site with a legacy beyond 2017

The solution

Oyster delivered modern design that also reflected Jane's era, built onto a responsive and accessible website driven by Drupal CMS. The site lists event effectively allows the user to explore either by location or date. The site is part of an ongoing project and will grow further by February 2017.
