Regency Society of Virginia
There is a brand new re-enactment group called the Regency Society of Virginia. This is of particular interest to people like me who live near Washington, D.C. and have despaired of finding a casual (but knowledgeable) group of people on the East Coast who aren't doing Revolutionary or Civil War events. I quote from their website:-
"Do you adore Jane Austen and her works (or the movies based upon them)? Are you a War of 1812 or Napoleonic Wars re-enactor? Perhaps you love the fashions of the Regency era or wish you had a place to wear such finery? Enjoy the elegance of an English Country Dance?...We are a group of early 19th century enthusiasts who seek to unite all those who wish to recapture the refinement and civil society of this by-gone age. Join us in this, our inaugural year, as we host workshops, costumed events, lectures and more with a distinctly Regency flavor."
Sounds like fun to me! Excuse me while I go plan some Regency costumes
