Regency Michaelmas Ball

This is to announce that there will be a costumed ball at the Hotel Macdonald in Edmonton on Sunday, September 28, which is the eve of Michaelmas.

Upper Rooms, Bath
I will be arranging some dance lessons leading up to this event, so that guests will be familiar with the dances before the night. I will also be posting tutorials here on costume-making.

If there is enough interest, I can also arrange for costumes to be made overseas for a reasonable price. I can also recommend people to a Mantuamaker of reproduction calibre in Alberta, if they would like to order something of real quality and value.

Comments, questions and ideas welcome. Please email me or leave a note in the comments below.

To inspire you, here is a picture of the Upper Rooms at Bath, where Jane Austen herself would have danced.

And below is a picture of Mr. Darcy at the Hotel Macdonald, to show that I am in earnest.
