Victorian Ball 2018, Bath, Saturday, 28. April 2018

SOLD OUT. As always, there will be a waiting list in operation, do contact us if interested!



Dance the night away in Victorian finery!
Following the success of the last four ***** we organized, (Spectacular Masquerade in 2013 and the Victorian ones in 2015, 2016 and 2017), we are now returning to our beautiful venue, the amazing Assembly Rooms, in the historic city of Bath.

Pass the night away dancing polkas and waltzes, swanning around in ball gowns and tailcoats, sipping drinks, nibbling delicacies from the finger buffet and posing for photographs.
The dances will be mostly called and explained by our wonderful Dance Master - Stuart Marsden, and for those who would like a bit more practice there will be a dance workshop earlier in the day.


There will be a cash bar at the venue, and a finger buffet.

Over 18 please, (16 plus if accompanied by an *****)

This is an inclusive event - all nationalities, genders, sexual orientations, ethnicities etc are welcome - as long as your passion is history of fashion, dancing etc, and you are appropretly dressed, you are cordially welcome.

Please note, it is not a re-enactment or role playing event.

2017 Menu - new meny coming soon!

DRESSCODE- strict

Black tie, Victorian. We are aiming at a high lever of authenticity - and the previous ***** were remarkable especially for the high quality of clothing - either made bespoke, hired or homemade. We wish to continue this trend and drive the quality even higher as more and more people comment on how incredible the feeling is - live music, dimmed lights, silk and lace swishing around, past elegance at its best!

There is a support group for those who make their own attire, as well as specific costuming/corsetry courses over the year.

For those who prefer to purchase their finery, there are a few companies, ours included, who are offering discounts for the ball goers as well, whether for bespoke or off the peg items. The list of the official dressmakers, milliniers, tailors etc who offer the discount will be published in a few weeks and updated regularly.

Good quality Victoriana is welcome too, and if you are new to the world of historical ***** and want a taster before you embark on a sewing hobby, modern evening attire is acceptable - Long skirts required, no strapless dresses or nudity please.
It is much easier for gents - modern black tie is fine!

This is not a Steampunk, Goth, Cosplay or Fantasy event - there is a number of other ***** catering for these themes.

As before, we are planning to have a Victorian breakfast in the Pumps Rooms on Sunday morning, and everybody is welcome to join in. ( booking tables recommended)

Tickets are available though the website now -


Again, there will be a few perks available for the ticket holders: discounts from official dressmakers, tailors, suppliers etc. please check the webstie for details

Current list will be sent to you when you purchase your ticket, and all new deals will be advertised here as well.
