Jane Austen Festival 2016

November 10, 2017

For me, to be a part of the Regency Promenade, in Bath, and not have a camera to take hundreds of photos, is just horrible!  So many lovely outfits, friends, awesome architecture (and Bath has some of the best!), so much missed…yes, I need a new camera, as mine died in Whitby, in April.  It is sadly missed!

But, it is always an adventure, to turn back the clock two hundred years, and join several hundred people dressed for a Grand Regency Promenade through the streets of one of Britain’s loveliest Georgian cities.

Suffice it to say, we had a wonderful day meeting with friends again, being photographed, and being part of another world record attempt at largest number of people in Regency costume in one place, as we were counted into the Assembly Rooms, where the Promenade was to begin…I will have to check to see what the numbers were, and whether we did it. 

Later, we headed back to the Assemble Rooms for the market, and refreshments.  I bought a beautiful white child’s sunbonnet, and Robert bought some buttons.

It was here that I realised that I had my phone with me, so I managed to get this photo of these lovely ladies, despite the crush of people…


It was rather warm in there, so we strolled into the ballroom, where people were chatting to friends and acquaintance, and where we bumped into Sarah, and a young lady in a lovely white dress.


Shopping and socialising done, Robert and I decided to explore some of the streets that we had not visited before, before heading back to Trowbridge…
