I love to travel and some time ago discovered I also love to write, combine this with my husband's photography and we get to share it all with you. Please visit us at www.facebook.com/brucevandersluisimages
Who is your favourite Jane Austen character?
What better way to spend Mother's Day than to spend A Day with Jane – Austen that is.
You are invited to escape into the world of Jane Austen on Mother's Day 13 May 2018 from 12 pm to 3 pm at Ayres House Conservatory, 288 North Terrace, Adelaide.
Start your journey with a photo opportunity and short travel with Carriage of Occasion. You will experience romance, Regency costumes and the very best afternoon tea. In keeping with the period and the story, you will interact with characters from Jane's novels while you enjoy music in keeping with the times. Watch their stories unfold throughout the afternoon.

You may wish to wander the gardens with a friend, catch up on gossip and become acquainted with drawing. Maybe you can master the art of needlework or try your hand at a round of Jane Austen's Sweethearts card game. But then again, maybe you could learn a court dance from local choreographer Vanessa Raymond, become silhouetted, or play rhymes with rose. End the afternoon with a final concert and readings.
