Celebrate summer with the team! On this special day, just ahead of the anniversary of Jane Austen’s death,  Jane Austen’s House want you to honour their favourite authoress by dressing up in your finest Regency regalia. They will be strutting our stuff in the House, preening on the lawn, and promenading in the shrubberies. Elegance will prevail!

This year’s Dress Up Day will be hosted by Dr Serena Dyer, dress historian and expert in historical dress recreation. From 11am-2pm, Serena will be leading the way in recreating gorgeous Regency style, offering surgeries on your own Regency outfits, and showcasing her own collection of handmade gowns. Come along to learn, enjoy and be inspired – all in the name of fun, fashion and dress history!
