Picnic at Pemberley
September 7 @ 11:30 am - 4:00 pm$2.00 – $35.00
Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy requests the pleasure of your company at A Picnic at Pemberley, in the stunning grounds of the Abbey Museum and Church to partake in an afternoon of elegance and grace.
Bring a picnic lunch or pre-purchase a hamper to enjoy in the gardens. Find amusement in games such as pall-mall, the game of graces, battledore and archery. Then find a partner to dance with on the lawn, Dance Kaleidoscope will assist if you don’t know the dances. Practice your brush strokes with the Church or the gardens as your subject.
For those that are a little more studious, you can learn of the use of herbs and (surprising!) etiquettes of the Regency era.
Afternoon tea will be served at 2:15pm which will include tea, coffee, cool beverages and a range of delicious sandwiches, cakes, biscuits and more.
Our senior curator will be available to answer any questions while you explore the museum. Tour the Abbey Church to see the stunning stained glass windows.
Dance Kaleidoscope will be running a dance workshop at 10:00am if you would like to improve your dancing skills.
Limited tables (of 8) are available. For table reservations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Bookings essential.
To raise funds for the Museum’s Art Gallery project, a raffle will be available. Tickets for the raffle available online and on the day.
