The Fancy Ball

15 June @ 6:30 pm 11:30 pm

The Fancy Ball

You’re invited to join in on the Fancy Ball at Bath Assembly Rooms. Don your fanciest outfit, bring your friends and have a fun evening of two halves.

Have a go at dancing and playing cards like the Georgians, embellish your outfit at the accessories wardrobe or try make-up styles from the time. Guests will be able to take some time out from the ball to explore the pop-up exhibition, and grab refreshments from the bar.

Later, hit the dance floor for a more modern form of assembly, soundtracked by a local DJ.

Whilst the Fancy Ball is inspired by Georgian fancy dress balls, there is no requirement for guests to dress in Georgian costume – although this is welcomed.

Guests are asked to rummage in their wardrobes and find their fanciest outfit to wear, and if they wish, to embellish it with a themed twist.

Perhaps you might like to turn that silver sequined dress into a moon and stars outfit with a homemade headdress, or jazz up those chinos with a stylish jacket and DIY decorated hat.

The Georgians knew how to make the most of what was in their wardrobe, making it fancy with ribbons, trimmings, buttons, feathers, beads and decorations – so please feel free to do the same.
