The year is 1831 – Henry Adams, gentleman, cordially invites you to join him at the esteemed Royal Pavilion, to enjoy a truly Elegant Entertainment. Listen as he engages with you in refined and agreeable conversation about the splendid seaside town of Brighton. Hear about its wonderful attractions, such as the principal Baths, The Maze and the magnificent gardens and cricket ground, and delight in the delectable gossip of the day – told with the utmost discretion of course! All accompanied by delightful sampling of Georgian snacks and drinks in the Red Drawing Room. Principally Mr Adams will prepare you to attend the most fashionable of balls by guiding you through the steps of some of the most simple of dances in the magnificent Music Room and, in doing so, bring your dancing to perfection. Miss Heyrick will accompany the dances exquisitely on her recorder. Do not be concerned if you have not engaged in this recreation before as Mr Adams will be your very trusted guide and ensure pleasure is received by all. Informal and improvised role play by four Georgian enthusiasts, interacting with and responding to the group, allowing the audience to gain a thought-provoking and entertaining insight into the Georgian period. Georgian-style attire is welcome but not essential.

She documented how the wartime conditions affected her relationships with her husband, sons and her role in society. Nella continued to keep a diary for Mass Observation until 1967.
