    In compliance with the Governor of Virginia's order for citizens of the Commonwealth to stay home to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we have cancelled all in-person events through June 10.  Should the order be rescinded prior to that date, we will evaluate which events may go forward at that time.

    We hope that in the meantime you will join us for our online events!  Click on the link to The Club to interact with us while we keep the appropriate social distance.  We look forward to the day that we will be able to meet in person again!

    Every respectable Regency gentleman wanted to be admitted to the membership of the most prestigious clubs so that he might have a fashionable place to socialize and wile away his leisure hours.  With Coronavirus keeping us inside, we decided we needed such a distraction, too.  (Only ours is online and open to everyone, whether you're a gentleman or not!)  We invite you to join us at The Club, a new page on our site for socializing while social distancing.  There, you'll find all the latest information on contests, online events, and virtual field trips so that you can stay in touch with the RSV without leaving the comfort of your home.  You don't need to be a member to participate.  We hope to see you there soon!

    Schools shut.  Government buildings closed.  Events cancelled.  Due to the sensible precautions being taken to reduce the spread of Coronavirus, many people are finding much more time on their hands.  And since we are unable to gather with you in person, the Regency Society of Virginia is hoping to take advantage of the technology that allows us to gather online by proposing....A CONTEST! 

    Use those extra days off and that fabric stash to create a reticule in keeping with the theme, "hibernation."  You may interpret that word in whatever way you please--and we encourage you to be creative!--and submit up to three pictures of your hibernation-inspired reticule to us at info@varegency.org by May 1, 2020.  We will be posting all submissions online and the winners will be chosen by vote.  And, yes!  Prizes (a selection from one of three late 18th-/early 19th century prints) will be awarded!  Visit our "event" listing for more details!

    Out of concern for the health of our members and friends, the Regency Society of Virginia will be suspending all gatherings through mid-April.  We will reevaluate the situation and make a determination on later events at the end of that period.

    In the meantime, be sure to watch your inbox for updates on RSV news and announcements.  We wish everyone good health as we join the community in attempting to minimize the spread of this virus.

    Wondering what the RSV has in store this year?  Wonder no more!  Several of our planned events have been posted on our Events page with more on the way.  Included in the upcoming events are the return of Regency dance practices in Portsmouth as well as old favorites such as the Ladies' Retreat and the Victory Ball.  Most of the events are open for registration, too, so you can let us know you'll be there!

    We also have the minutes from the RSV Annual meeting posted here for those who would like to review them.  Thanks again to everyone who attended the meeting and contributed their comments!

    If you were disappointed to miss out on discounted tickets to this Saturday's outing to see "Sense and Sensibility" at the Wells Theater, here's another chance!  We have a couple of tickets available (to be purchased together or individually) and have reopened registration so that any interested parties can snag them!  Go to the event listing here on the website to purchase the tickets.  Act quickly since we have to turn in our seating arrangements this evening so this opportunity is only available until this afternoon (Thursday, January 30)!  Hope to see you there!

    The Regency Society of Virginia's annual business meeting will be held in Williamsburg on Saturday, February 8, 2020, beginning at 1:00PM.  We'll be meeting in the Community Room at Riverside Doctors' Hospital to review 2019, announce many of our planned 2020 events, and conclude with our traditional "Buy/Sell/Trade" event.  This is the same date as the "Mini Market" hosted by Burnley and Trowbridge (along with RSV Member-Friendly Merchants, Dames a la Mode and Redthreaded), so make plans to stay in Williamsburg following the meeting to take advantage of some great shopping!  Admission to the annual meeting is free but your registration is greatly appreciated!  Click here to let us know that you'll be joining us!
