LICMF Event 10: Regency Dance afternoon

An afternoon of dance Jane Austen style! Anyone acquainted with the novels of Jane Austen or the film and TV adaptations of her works will be familiar with her lively depictions of balls and dances. Dancing allowed young men and women to become acquainted and for courtship to flourish. It was a pastime enjoyed by all ages at balls in country houses and Assembly Rooms throughout the country.

Most dances of the period were English country dances: longways dances with couples facing each other in two lines before dancing their way to the bottom of the line and back up the dance. Also popular were the Cotillions and Quadrilles of French origin, danced in sets of four couples. Audience members will be encouraged to participate and try and few moves!

The castle grounds will be open after this event for our audience to enjoy a picnic before the commencement of the evening entertainment. We will offer the facility of pre-ordering a picnic hamper from LICMF or you may prefer to bring your own!
