I’d forgotten how much I loved this video and song when I was a kid. Who knows…maybe it planted the seed of all things 18th century in my impressionable young mind?

Unfortunately I can’t embed it, but do check it out. Gorgeous 18th century-ness not to mention John Malkovich and Hugh Laurie reprising their roles in Dangerous Liasons and Blackadder!


And what a tiring journey it was! Four hours from mine and 5 from Mic’s. Broke the journey overnight by staying with the bf’s folks. Micaela made an impression by introducing them to Leffe beer. THe hall was lovely, a fantasy of pink and white moulded roccoco-ness and we had the stage to ourselves but….very few people to hear us! In fact, the organisers very kindy refunded us £20 due to the poor turnout. We like them though… here’s a link Castles and Carriages

However, we took advantage of the stage and the space and tested out a few new songs including “man is for the woman made” by Purcell. Our fellow exhibitors were very nice, clapped loudly and took lots of photos and even vid footage. When we know where this is posted we’ll add a link and you’ll be the first to know!

We’ve also had a costume change. I got busy with the glue-gun and made us some lovely feathered hair combs. Check out Mic’s

In fact, we love them much that I’m planning to make some to sell at gigs, so everyone can have one!

Here’s some links to some of the other stall-holders..perfect should you be planning a gothic event!

History Undressed

I came across this super historical blog after an update from Google alerts (a great hassle free way to trawl the web for handy info) History Undressed has loads of articles and links about 18th century stuff and more. Lots of links to interesting sites and blogs. Gotta go…I’ve got some clicking to do!

The Duchess trailer

We’re very excited here at Georgianna mansion. Kiera Knightley is to star in a film about our namesake, Lady Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire. She partied, she gambled, she had big hair…what a gal!

here’s the trailer for you:

Yes, you historically-minded people, we spell our name differently, with two n’s…that’s so that you can find us when you’re searching for us on the internet, gadzooks!

It’s taken some fiddling, but I’ve finally managed to add some audio. So now you can hear what we sound like!

We’re starting to book up a few gigs and workshops. Dates and info to follow, watch this space. I’m hoping we’re in time to bag a slot at Whitby Goth Weekend wedding show. We have some goth followers on myspace so we reckon it would be a good idea. And the venue’s rather lovely-looking too!

Now, to see if I can get some audio up on this blog!
