Parade to start festival
The centre of Bath will be brought to a standstill on Saturday for a parade of people in Regency costume.
Dozens of Jane Austen enthusiasts will remember the author in the Grand Regency Costumed Promenade, which sees Milsom Street closed to traffic.
The event, which opens the Jane Austen Festival, begins at 11am in Queen Square, and will be preceded by an historic military display in the Royal Crescent.
The route will take the walkers through Gay Street, George Street, Milsom Street and Stall Street and see them end up at Parade Gardens, where there will be another display and Regency dancing.
