The ladies got ready in the Alcove Bedroom, where we also have a rail of dressing up clothes for visitors to try on. We then moved down to the Painted Hall, where Laine and Ellin tried out a few dance steps ready for the big night. It didn't take many moves before they were dancing like professionals, showing lots of Georgian elegance.
If you feel tempted to strike a Georgian pose yourself, you can join in on 22 June at our Pride and Prejudice costume evening dinner and dance (call the event team on 01246 565377 to reserve your place). During the summer we will also be inviting our visitors to dress up – keep an eye on our website as we release more details soon.
