‘I never in my life saw anything more elegant than their dresses.’

Pride & Prejudice

Celebrate summer with us! On this special Sunday, the anniversary of Jane Austen’s death, we want you to honour our favourite authoress by dressing up in your finest Regency regalia. We’ll be strutting our stuff in the House, preening on the lawn, and promenading in the shrubberies. Elegance will prevail!

We will be taking photographs throughout the day, to help us refill our bank of imagery to use on the website and promotional materials.

By attending the day, you will agree to feature in photography (we’ll ask you to sign an agreement when you arrive).

To say thank you, we’ll give our favourite outfits shout outs on social media throughout the day and award some special prizes!

Date: 18 July

Time: 10.00 – 16.30
