12-14 April 2019

Jane Austen Festival Australia is an annual celebration in Canberra where Austen and Napoleonic fans from all over Australia come and indulge themselves in everything Regency - including dancing, music, food, games, archery, fencing, theatre, promenades, grand balls, talks, workshops, costumes and books. This festival is now a regular part of the ACT Heritage Festival, Australian Heritage Week and is supported by the ACT Government, the Australian Costumers Guild and the Earthly Delights Historic Dance Academy. Since its inception in 2008 this little festival has blossomed into one of the most delightful four days anyone could experience each April in an old and beautiful part of Canberra, the Federal capital of Australia.

An invitation to cricket, regency style.

Aylwen Gardiner-Garden invites you to take tea and join a game of Bat & Trap and Stool Ball (early forms of cricket) on Sunday 21 April 2013 as part of Jane Austen Festival Australia.

We will be gathering at 3 o'clock in the lower lawn below St Johns Church and tea will be served with period selections of bread and butter, preserves and lemon curd, biscuits, and small cakes along with the usual complementary nuts and dried fruits.

We ask if you could bring your own tea cup and saucer as well as a chair or bench to sit. Perhaps, a gentleman of your acquaintance will be kind enough to bring one for you.

Bring along some needlework or knitting.
