There is a strict evening dress code for this event of Formal Evening Wear / Black tie which we ask all attendees to participate in.
There is no longer any seating left in the Ballroom for Saturday night although you are welcome to book in one of the other rooms and walk freely around to dance where ever you would like.
The Saturday evening ball for the Tea Room and Ballroom is open seating which we then allocate and provide a reserved plan to save an opening-door scrum. However the seats will be in tables of ten for the ballroom and tearoom, and limited seating/standing room for the Octagon, so if you organise a group in the ballroom or tearoom we will be able to reserve your group table together. We will try to accomodate you in your room preference at the time of booking, but can make no guarantee and should your prefered room be unavailable, we will offer, without obligation, to allocate alternatively on a first-come, first-served basis. All of the rooms for the ball will have a unique atmosphere and you are free to explore whichever room you would like to dance in throughout the evening. Those who hold tickets for the tearoom or ballroom will have an allocated seat for the duration of the evening.
