Enjoy another jolly evening of dancing in Dickens' London. Mr. and Mrs. Fezziwig invite you to A Victorian 12th Night Ball – with special guest Charles Dickens and a number of his favorite characters. After a Victorian dance lesson at 7pm, Bangers & Mash plays an evening of elegant Victorian ballroom dance music and lively English Country Dances (which will be briefly taught and called). No partners required! No host bar, light snack buffet (potluck contributions welcome), and performances by the Peerless Music Hall and Mr. Dickens himself. Victorian costume (circa 1837-1870) or modern evening dress is admired, but not required.
This year we have a new addition: Some of Mr. Dickens' colorful less respectable characters have discovered Mr. Fezziwig's wine cellar (in the Lodge's Rathskellar) and invite you to drop in and join the, if you will, for a drink and a chat at their no-host bar (That means you pays for yer own drinks, mates!).
Cost: $20 in advance (by December 28); $25 at the door.
