Unusually I had to make a trip into Bath on a Saturday and thought it rather busy. What with Bath Rugby playing at home this afternoon with the resultant supporters roaming around the city, we got caught up watching a promenade of people wearing various costumes. It was the opening day of the Jane Austen Festival where a world record attempt was taking place – an attempt to gather the highest number of people wearing regency costume in one place at one time. After the attempt there was a promenade of all those taking part through the streets of Bath from the Assembly Rooms to the Parade Gardens. Only time will tell if the world record was achieved but judging by tbe numbers taking part in the promenade, the chances are quite good.
