On Saturday 11 May 2024 between 1:00pm – 4:00pm, Regency guests will have the opportunity to:

  • Enjoy traditional tea cakes and an array of delicious delicacies
  • Play Regency era games such as the Game of Graces, Pall-Mall and Shuttlecock
  • Learn the etiquette of the Regency Period
  • Test your aim with the popular sport of archery
  • See the beautiful stained glass windows in the Abbey Church
  • Watch or participate in Regency dancing
  • Visit the Abbey Museum and marvel at the remarkable scope of its collections, spanning more than 500,000 years of humankind.

Gates open at 1:00pm (earlier for those who will be participating in the pre-booked Dance Workshop). The official proceedings will begin at 1:00pm with afternoon tea served at 2:15pm. Cool beverages will be available throughout the afternoon, hot beverages to be served with afternoon tea.

Don your best Regency costume and find accessories at the Abbey Shoppe on the day.

Tickets: Adults $47.50 | Children (5-12yrs) $27.50

Add-On ticket for the Regency Dance Workshop at 10.30am:

There will be instructors, courtesy of Dance Kaleidoscope, to explain the importance of dance during the Regency period and you will have the opportunity to learn a few different dances. As Regency dances were not physically arduous (a lady would never exert themselves to the state of perspiring) you will still have plenty of energy to see you through the rest of the day’s activities. There are only 90 placements in this workshop so you will need to book early.

Dance Workshop: All Ages $15

Tickets on Sale 20th March. Visit the Abbey Museum website to book your tickets HERE. If you require help with your booking, call the Abbey Museum on (07) 5495 1652.
