For our Regency Period enthusiasts, the Jane Austen Festival is being held the weekend before Conflux 9. For those with leave and $$, you have the opportunity to both events. While there are no special deals between Conflux and Earthly Delights their event provides another opportunity for you to wear your Regency frocks, jackets and trousers – you may even spot yourself on the telly or in the news, as the Jane Austin Festival receives Australia-wide media coverage.
For more information, visit the festival website.
Some of the festival musicians and dancers will also participate in the Conflux 9 Regency Banquet on the Friday night to add to the flavour and fun of the evening.
We are also lucky enough to have a Regency Dancing and Manners workshop available on the Friday morning of the convention, presented by John from Earthly Delights ($45 for members). He needs 16 people to make the workshop work, something about quadrilles.
After that Aylwen Gardener-Garden (also from Earthly Delights) will be doing an hour-long show and tell workshop on costume design ($10 for Conflux 9 members).
