Regency Parade

Quick ink-brush sketches of yesterday’s ‘Grand Regency Costumed Parade’, part of the annual Jane Austen festival held in Bath. The parade ended appropriately in Parade Gardens, where some of the 500 participants stood still long enough to be drawn.  On the right is Cecilia on her ‘hobby horse’, a pedal-free early bicycle, and right at the bottom a tiny glimpse of the wonderful ‘Amazing Camera Obscura’ which provided some Regency entertainment. My drawings don’t do justice to the extreme silliness of the Naval hats, and next year I’ll try and capture more of the wide range of beautiful costumes on display. Maybe I’ll dress up as a Regency sketcher and join the parade?
