Regency Day at Gunby
On Monday 2 May Gunby Hall and Gardens will be transported back to the Regency period. The National Trust property will be visited by dozens of reenactors from this elegant era who will mix with visitors, hold dance demonstrations, have a period church service and pose for photo opportunities.
'Gunby Hall was lived in during the Regency period, says Gunby Visitor Experience Manager Astrid Gatenby, so it feels like the past is coming to life again when we welcome so many reenactors in period costume.Why not take some selfies with the Regency ladies and gentlemen? Maybe you'll catch a glimpse of Emma or Mr Darcy himself.’
There will be historic harpsichord music performed in the dining room, dance demonstrations on the front lawn, promenading to the church and a period picnic in the gardens as well as admission to three floors of the house and eight acre gardens full of blossom and spring flowers. The tea-room will serve drinks and cake throughout the day.
Regency Day starts at 11am and last admission is at 4pm - bring the family for a fun day out. Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome too as are picnics in the gardens.
