Along with the re-enactments you will have the opportunity to delve into life in Jane Austen's time period. Music, dance, costumes, and Regency vendors will all be present. On both Saturday and Sunday you can watch the Meryton Assembly Dancers perform period dances. Visitors will have the chance to join in and dance as Jane Austen and Elizabeth Bennet would have danced.
Along with the activities there are all the beautiful homes from various time periods that can be seen at GCVM.
