PEERS Jane Austen Picnic: a Day of Sense & Sensibility


"He [Sir John Middleton] delighted in collecting about him more young people than his house would hold... He was a blessing to all the juvenile part of the neighborhood, for in summer he was for ever forming parties to eat cold ham and chicken out of doors..." - Sense & Sensibility

For more details, check out P.E.E.R.S. Jane Austen Picnic Dance page.

This is an opportunity to go back in time, where lots of people are wearing period clothes and all of them eating period lunches, and joining in period dancing! Costumes are not required, of course. But for people who have them, this is a chance to indulge ourselves and wear them out and about!

P.E.E.R.S. is the Period Events & Entertainments Re-Creation Society, which puts on different events with period themes throughout the year around the San Francisco Bay area.

(Check out the pictures from their 2007
Pride & Prejudice picnic here.)

Most of us from Thither will be there and we hope you will join us for a delightful afternoon!
