Pictures from the Jane Austen Festival 2019

All across Bath, bonnets have been sewn, dresses ironed and buckles polished, as we've welcomed visitors new and old to this year's Jane Austen Festival! The yearly festival favourite, our costumed promenade, saw hundreds of visitors in their finest Regency outfits basking in the late autumn sunshine as they sauntered through the streets of Bath. Starting in Sydney Gardens, the parade was led by His Majesty's 33rd Regiment of Foot. The Guildhall played host to the Festival Fayre, where visitors could find everything Regency, from bonnets to books. Events have been taking place all week, including theatrical performances, book readings, events at the Regency Tea Rooms, crafting workshops, tours and much more. Is we write there, there are still two full days of the festival to go, so it's not too late to take part - head over to the Jane Austen Festival website for a full schedule of this weekend's events!

It was the first time I took part in the promenade with my daughter. It was amazing and very enjoyable. Our only disappointment was that we did not walk to the Royal Crescent as other years. I plan to come again next year and hope the route may include this. Well done to all the organisers.
