As a member of the Jane Austen Society I receive regular newsletters.

In the latest issue there was a brief mention of this year’s Beverley Georgian Festival.


“To celebrate both the 300th anniversary of Beverley Market Cross and the succession of King George I in 1714, a number of events and performances are being organised by the Beverley Georgia”n Festival committee , including re-enactments, displays of Georgian properties on Heritage weekend, period music, theatre, film, costume and cooking, with a masked banquet in the splendid setting of Beverley Minster, as well as film showings, food and hands-on craft activities.

The Beverley Georgian Festival will run from Saturday 13th September until Sunday 21st September 2014.”

There will be talks about Georgian domestic life (by a former Curator of Fairfax House) and Mary Wollstonecraft as well as a re-enactment of the proclamation of the accession of George I.

Many of the events are free and there are several catering for the young fans of the period.
