What to wear
See what past attendees have worn to this festival at http://janeaustenfestival.com/past-festivals/. If you cannot find an outfit to wear we simply ask that for evening events women wear smart casual single-colour empire-line gowns and the gentlemen wear a white long sleeved shirt with a waistcoat and neat dress pants or smart dress suit or uniform. Below are some fashion plates that you can use for inspiration when putting together your ball gown for our Napoleonic Ball.
If you want to hire a costume, pay on the ticket page then visit 87 Schlich St., Yarralumla between 3-5pm on Thur. 13 or Mon 17 April between 2-4pm. Money will not be taken on site. If nothing fits or suits your money will be refunded. If times don’t suit, pay then email [email protected] to make other arrangements.
