Our Balls are historically informed, but adapted for the enjoyment and convenience of modern Regency Dancing enthusiasts. If you'd like to attend, please complete the form below. Payments can be made by Paypal, cheque, or bank transfer; the payment details will be sent by email when your form is processed. You'll receive confirmation by email when your payment has been received, Dance Cards are to be collected at the event.

(*) The Ball is aimed at experienced dancers, but guests of all abilities are welcome. The caller will be expecting a reasonable level of ability from the dancers, so inexperienced dancers might struggle. It could be necessary for inexperienced dancers to sit out for some of the dances. If you'd like to gain experience of period dancing in advance of the Ball, you'll be welcome to attend our practice sessions in the Winchester area; if you'd like assistance in finding an alternative group nearer to you, contact us and we'll help you to find one. The workshop on the day of the Ball will be used to walk through the dances, attendance is optional, but strongly encouraged.

An optional costumed visit will be made to Breamore House on Sunday 23rd October. This magnificent Elizabethan house was one of the filming locations for the 2005 Pride and Prejudice film. The Group entry rate is 8 per person, and we'll find a suitable pub for lunch. Further details for the Sunday event will be distributed nearer the time; it is likely that you'll need to arrange your own transport to and from Breamore (approximately 9 miles south of Salisbury), and the 12.00 lunch venue (The Bat & Ball Inn at Breamore).

If you'd like to book a hotel in Salisbury or the surrounding area, a range of options are available.

If you have any questions, please contact us at tickets@hrd.org.uk.
