Rummaging through the Reticule – 4pm (duration 1½ hours)
What did Jane Austen and her characters keep in their reticules? All will be revealed when the contents of this 18th Century handbag are spilt in the privacy of a Regency drawing room. Jane Tapley’s talk is followed by refreshments, a traditional cream tea – scones, jam and cream and, of course, tea.
Venue: Kinwarton, 3 Upper Camden Place (part of) Camden Rd, BA1 5HX (20 mins walk)
