We will also hold a special workshop on the day of the Ball, with Heather and the Ball musicians, from 1.30 to 3.30pm. Entry by gold coin to help pay for the hall - details of the venue will be released soon so stay tuned for more information on this.

Some dances will also be included at English Country Dance Workshops on 25/7, 8/8 and 22/8 so now there are even more opportunities to learn and practice dances for the Ball.

Instructions for the dances are available in the documents below. All dances are in the main document, however this includes scanned copies of two dances and these may not be completely readable, so these dances are also separately included for easier viewing.
