The Madding Crowd: “At Home with the Austens” Family Day
On Saturday 30th June, the weather kept fine and warm, and many people visited the Museum for the “At Home with the Austens Family Day”.
Visitors could see items not normally on show at the museum…try their hand at making lavender bags, or orange pomanders..attempt country games such as the tug-of-war or sack races, or could also simply sit in the beautiful gardens listening throughout the day to some wonderful music provided by The Madding Crowd
Dressed in period costume, they entertained the audience for hours. We thought you might like to see a gallery of photographs of their performance. Simply click on the first of the thumbnails below to see the photographs in detail.
