The Carlton Set is proud to present The Duke of Wellington’s Grand Regency Ball at the City of London Club on 31 May 2013 from 6pm to 2am !
The entire Club will be at your disposal for the evening, and we intend it to be a night of excellent food, excellent music, and excellent company from your arrival in the early evening until carriages in the small hours of the following morning.
Situated in the heart of the historic City of London and only minutes away from London Liverpool Street station.
The first Duke of Wellington was one of the Club’s founder members and used this beautiful Georgian building more than once as a venue for balls and parties. There is a splendid, little-known portrait of him in one of the upper salons.
The premises comes complete with a Bar, Dining Room/Ballroom, Drawing Room, and even a rooftop terrace for those who wish to take the air after a sustained amount of dancing! The Club will also be ‘dressed’ appropriately for the occasion with, amongst other things, Regimental Colours above the grand staircase…
Tickets will cost £80, for which you will get:
1.) Exclusive use of the whole Club from evening until morning.
2.) A three-course dinner.
3.) One bottle of either white or red wine.
4.) The services of a Regency dancing Caller & accompanying musicians.
The organisers are aiming for exactly 100 guests to make this a success: please do come along; wear your finest Regency uniforms, dresses, and costumes, enjoy yourself, and share in the experience of what will be a very special event!
The dance programme will be published four weeks before the ball for any who wish to practice ahead of time.
