    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.)

    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!
