"They don’t really touch. Women don’t shake hands with men. So the first time Darcy touches Elizabeth is when he helps her into the carriage. Which is a really beautiful moment because it’s the first skin on skin touch. I think today, we don’t think twice about that at all. I shake people’s hands, I give them a kiss, whatever. It’s interesting to think, if you don’t have that tactile nature, how important one touch can be" - Keira Knightley.

Guess what I spent Saturday watching??
The jousting was terrific - no-one was unseated, and the knights were joined by an incredible Amazon who demo-ed bareback light cavalry combat techniques - she was quite astounding.
The knight above had travelled from Quebec for the tourney, and was not only very good in the lists - but was also his own armourer - beautiful work. A little dented, so he blithely mentioned that he was going to be making a new suit for next season, Milanese style, black, out of spring steel.
The weather was perfect and the crowds had a blast.
One thing I noted, in comparison to say, Comic or SF conventions, was that here, the women were all treated with the utmost respect and courtesy - no matter their garb. Loutish comic nerds - take note, it IS possible to be civilized when in public…

And this show is coming up again, weekend after next! V. stoke.
