Regency Cheshire Talk Photos

 My Regency Cheshire talk at Chester Library last Saturday was a sell-out! Many thanks to everyone who braved the Chester traffic, as the city was very busy with Christmas shoppers.
It was wonderful to see the library staff dressed up in such beautiful Regency costumes, and those members of the audience who took the trouble to come dressed Austen-era style, too.

I'd like to thank Lena Shiell, Debbie, Linda Clarke and all the library staff for making me so welcome.  The meeting room was adorned with a wonderful exhibition of Georgian prints courtesy of Chester Library, too. 
There are more photos from the event on my Sue Wilkes blog and on the Chester Library facebook page.
