Event description

Description

One night, one ball… dance like Jane Austen.

Take a trip back in time and join us to celebrate the life of Jane Austen.

Imagine yourself transported to the world of Jane Austen, walking straight into an elegant Ballroom, dancing to live music, having a Tête-à-tête with charming people, all as delighted to find themselves in Regency England.

Tickets for the Ball include entrance, the dancing, entertainment and a regency supper.

Dances are called by the wonderful Heather Clarke and there is live music supplied by the superb Phillip’s Dog.

Phillip's Dog, Early Colonial Dance Ensemble

Our Ball is a costumed event and all ladies and gentlemen dress in the style of the Regency or 18th Century period. The look is the Empire line, with a high waist just below the bust, very flattering and feels wonderful to wear. This is a terrific opportunity to go to town in a ball gown or breeches, plus all the accessories which look fantastic. Ideas for costumes can be found HERE.

Regency dancing is elegant and refined. However, it is energetic but you do not have to dance every dance!

You do NOT need to come with a dance partner, and you may dance with anyone you like.
Lots of people come solo, or as groups, and couples of all descriptions are welcome.
Dance lessons are not mandatory, but strongly recommended if you have never done this kind of dance before. You can join a dance workshop with early Colonial Dance, details HERE and it will help everyone enjoy the evening to the fullest.

We expect demand for tickets to be high for this special event; so do not delay in securing your place, as tickets are limited.
