Upcoming Regency Events

Though I very doubt that I will have the time to attend any events for a while (having moved to a more rural location this past fall and taken a new position), I am happy to share with you some of the upcoming activities with the VRS.

Help our friends at the John Marshall House in Downtown Richmond start the season by donning your Federal Era clothing and enhancing the period atmosphere for visitors.

March 9, 2013 - "Celebrating Pride and Prejudice" - Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts,  Suffolk, VA - 2:00 pm

The year 2013 marks the bicentennial of the publication of the best known novel of Regency authoress extraordinaire, Jane Austen.  We'll be celebrating this classic work of English literature in conjunction with the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts with a showing of the 2005 movie version of Pride and Prejudice starring Kiera Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen, followed by a talk on the novel by Margaret Sullivan, author of The Jane Austen Handbook and editrix of, and a Regency tea.  Period costume is encouraged but is not required.  Tickets for this event are $15/person and may be ordered through the Suffolk Center's website or by calling their box office at (757) 923-2900.
