Last August, the Governor’s House in Hyde Park Vermont hosted an “in character” Jane Austen Weekend. One of the participants, Tess, who appeared as Miss Darcy, has prepared a delightful video of the weekend, capturing the antics of the likes of Mrs. Croft, Mrs. Elton, Isabella Thorpe, and other various Austen characters as they rode horses, engaged in archery and croquet and needlework, and danced the night away! Here is the video of the fun now on youtube for all to enjoy!
If you would like to take part in this Austen back-in-time adventure this coming year, you can sign up for the upcoming August 10-12, 2012 weekend by visiting the inn’s website here: http://www.onehundredmain.com/jane_austen.html – Mr. Collins anyone?
Enchanting and elegant! (Even the Shrewsbury Cockup.) It was restful and refreshing to admire you from my seat in California.
