A special afternoon of Regency entertainment and activities was held at The Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology on Saturday, September 3, for the annual Picnic at Pemberley event.

The Jane Austen-style affair was attended by 200 guests, who happily stepped back in time to the early 1800s for an afternoon tea hosted by Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy.

The event featured a dance workshop by Dance Kaleidoscope, an embroidery workshop from Lady Felicity Miller and musical entertainment by the Moreton Bay Symphony Orchestra.

There was also archery, Maypole dancing and lectures on Regency etiquette.

A fine selection of homemade cakes, sandwiches, slices and more, accompanied by tea, coffee and cool drinks were served, and guests were invited to participate in games including pall mall, game of graces and quoits.

The afternoon concluded with a releasing of the doves, courtesy of White Wing Dove Service.

The afternoon is part of the Abbey Museum of Art and Archeology’s annual line-up of events hosted each year to raise money for the Museum.

Upcoming events for the museum include Kids Dig It! Egyptian Family fun day, The Big Dig, A Medieval Christmas and A Very Victorian Christmas.
