Hampshire Regency Dancers Annual Regency Ball
The Ball with an international following where guests can immerse themselves in the authentic atmosphere of the time.
Since 2005 we have held an annual Grand Regency Ball in Hampshire, each with a different theme. Guests are invited to come in period costume and enjoy popular dances of the time.
All dances are called and walked through and there is a workshop beforehand to familiarise guests with the steps.
Tickets usually sell out months in advance so it is advisable to book early, as places are limited.
Sign up to our mailing list to be the first to hear about the next Hampshire Regency Dancers Annual Ball.
