    If you plan on attending the Autumnal Picnic at the Francis Land House on September 9, please be aware that today is the last day that you can register for it.  Only those who register by the end of September 1 will have a tour of the c. 1805 house included.  You may still attend the picnic, of course, but you will be required to pay the museum admission fee in order to tour the home's interior.  (If you do miss the registration deadline, please e-mail us at info@varegency.org so that we will have a good handle on how many to anticipate will be in attendance.)

    Instructions for our program of dances are now available to download from the Victory Ball main page.  Links to videos for some of our dances have also been posted so that you may watch other groups which have tackled these dances in the past.  (There may be some slight differences in the figures between the videos and our particular program, so please be aware of that as you watch!)


    Have you purchased your ticket yet?  They are now available on the event listing.  There will be no sales at the door, so be sure to reserve your place before sales close on October 14.

    Don't miss out on our Autumnal Picnic coming up on September 9!  Bring a period dish to pass and enjoy an afternoon of period games and pleasant company at the Francis Land House in Virginia Beach.  Everyone who registers by September 1 will have a tour of the c. 1805 manor included!  Both members and non-members are encouraged to attend and while period attire is encouraged, it is not required.  The event is FREE for RSV members and just $5/person for non-members.  For more information and to register, visit the event page.

    Come one, come all!  You can now purchase tickets for our upcoming Victory Ball!


    Included in your registration ($35/members, $45/non-members) is, of course, dancing (called once again by the incomparable "Mr. Charles Steplively") and live music (from Dean Herington and Becky Ross), refreshments, and a "crash course" dance practice the day of the event.  Both Regency and modern semi-formal attire are welcome, so don't let the lack of period duds keep you from joining us!


    Registration closes October 14, so don't miss out!

    Our Regency Tea was sold out but we have had a cancellation which means one lucky person who was unable to attend can now join us!  Just visit the event listing to register.  (And if someone beats you to it, you can still add your name to the waitlist should we have another cancellation between now and the event.  Just remember that we need you to register by July 30!

    We're very much looking forward to spending an evening hearing a selection of early 19th century sea chanteys this Wednesday, June 14 at MacArthur Memorial Visitors Center.  Do join us for the FREE program, "Don't Forget Your Old Shipmates: Sailors and Sea Chanteys in the War of 1812."  Early 19th century attire is encouraged but not required.


    The RSV will be helping out by providing some period-inspired finger foods for the reception afterwards and we are looking to augment what our volunteers have already committed to bringing.  If you are available and willing to assist us by bringing a finger food for the reception, please contact us as soon as possible at info@varegency.org.


    We have also extended the deadline for registering for the Saturday, June 24 event commemorating the Battle of Craney Island.  Registration will now remain open until June 21 so that you may join us for our picnic on the grounds of Fort Norfolk.  Please do take advantage of the opportunity to spend a day in this often-overlooked Norfolk treasure!
