My friend Monica Cardinale, Italian but living in Amsterdam, was lucky enough to be in Bath for the Festival. She accepted to share her shots with all of us here at My Jane Austen Book Club. Thanks a lot, Monica! 

Hello everyone! I visited Bath for the first time last weekend and was so lucky to be able to experience the Jane Austen Festival atmosphere in town: the people gathering in Queen Square before the start of the Regency Costume Promenade, the activities at the Guildhall (where the Festival Fayre was held) and Regency "appearances" throughout the town.

Here are some pictures that hopefully will give you a feel of this very special event.
