Pride and Prejudice Ball

  Our annual Pride and Prejudice Ball takes place on Saturday 21st May in the Guildhall, Worcester. 

There are still a few tickets left so hurry if you haven’t yet booked. (www.eventbrite or

We are looking forward to musicians Vicki Swan ( nyckelharpa) and Jonny Dyer (guitar) playing the music for the dances chosen from the wealth of 17th and 18th century dances published by Playford, Walsh, Thompson, Wright, Cahusac and many more.

Last year our online ball brought dancers from America, Canada, the Phillipines, Spain, Holland, France and of course the UK; we’re not expecting people to travel quite so far this year!
