Ever wondered about what it might be like to have attended a Regency Dance back in the days of Jane Austen?
I look back at four of the Regency Balls I have organised at Guildhall in the City of London on behalf of Guildhall Library.
More than 90 dancers, many clad in intricate period costume, moved gracefully to the strains of the live Regency band, the Fortuna Trio, under the expert direction of Mrs Bennet from Mrs Bennet’s Ballroom.
Guests thoroughly enjoyed the event and said how wonderful it was to have the opportunity to dance in such a splendid venue. We hope to hold another such event in the near future.
