Regency Re-Enactment

Yesterday we went to Battle Proms at Highclere Castle, residency of the Earl of Carnarvon. BTW this is also where Downton Abbey is filmed.

Battle Proms is a combination of the usual proms in the park (orchestral music and fireworks) combined with a re-enactment of the Regency era

and the Peninsula Wars (calvary and cannons)

I didn't have my notebook with me, but I drank in all the details and loved every second
