Jane Austen Birthday Afternoon Tea

To celebrate Jane Austen´s 244. birthday we met for an Afternoon Tea. Each member brought something delicious and so we had to offer tea, sandwiches, scones, clotted cream, jam, sponge cake and tea biscuits.

Thanks again for coming and celebrating together!

While enjoying tea and delicious scones we introduced our new society and were able to gain new members. Unfortunately we forgot to take a group picture, so here is one where only we three were left.

Foundation of association

Nearly 15 years have passed since we went to see a movie and fell in love with the fashion and life around 1800. What has been our common hobby in the recent years, we now want to share with others. Therefore we decided to found an association that deals with the life and works of Jane Austen, and also with the history and life of the early and late modern period with focus on the early 19th Century.
