Gunby Hall and gardens will be transported back to Regency times at a special event this Bank Holiday Monday (May 27).

Regency re-enactors will be out and about at the National Trust property, giving the public the chance to meet the ‘Prince Regent’ and many other visitors in Regency dress.

Visitors will also have the chance to join in some country dancing and listen to live music from the era.

There will also be games in the gardens and costumes to try and buy.

‘We love the Regency period at Gunby Hall,” said house manager Astrid Gatenby. “Not only did the colourful Peregrine and Elizabeth Massingberd live at Gunby during Regency times, we were also one of the settings for a BBC mini series of Pride and Prejudice in 1980.

“So it is only fitting to relive the Jane Austen era again.

“Bring a picnic and spend the day with us,” Astrid added.

The Regency Re-enactment Day runs from 11am to 5pm. Normal admission charges apply. For more information call 01754 890102.
