If you’re in Bath on 19th September 2009 between 11am and 12.30pm, you may be forgiven for thinking you’ve been transported back to Regency times.
It’s the Grand Regency Promenade, a regular feature of the annual Jane Austen Festival, and this year there’ll be an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the ‘Largest gathering of people dressed in Regency costumes’.
This is the 9th Festival and it’s bigger and better than ever, with 44 events – including a real wedding, Regency style!
View the programme here. Wish I could go, but I’m book signing that weekend. Never mind, there’s always next year!
