Victorian Beach Party, July,Brighton

A free event for Victorian aficionados hosted mostly annually ( not in 2024, we are going to the Buxton Belle Epoque ball instead!)

- join us at the beach! - if you want to have a picnic on a beach and sport your newest bathing suit, simply come along, bring your own food and blanket!

After frolicking in style, we plan to have an evening promenade, showing off the fashionable seaside, boating etc. costumes - photos will be taken, gossip will be exchanged, flirting likely to happen - maybe a game of croquet on the lawn too!

This is not an official, finely structured event - I have enough work as it is with organizing our Victorian Ball in April and Romantic weekend in October, - so just a relaxed social gathering, a chance to wear your seaside finery and relax.

Dresscode - strictly Victorian, please. No blatant steampunk, goth etc. - lovely as they are they are just not a part of this particular event. Obviously, I cannot dictate what people are wearing on a public beach, but we would like to celebrate the historical aspects of our passion on this occasion. We do not wish to offend others with our decision, so please respect the dress code!

For Victorian lovers - we are aiming at the later decades of the era ( from 60s onwards) - mostly because of the fashions but also because for blokes there is not much in the way of swimwear before - they were allowed to go commando (banned in the UK in the 1860...). still, if you have late crinoline fashions to display or late 60s bathing suit, all good!

Victorian Ball 03/05/2025, Bath

 Dance the night way, Victorian style!

 This year the  theme is First Bustle 1868-1876 - no crinolines! -  we are back to the Guildhall in Bath. the event starts with a friday promanade, there is a dance workshop and the ball  to live music on Saturday.

Strict Dress code applies - please see the seciton in the shop for details! 

 And as long as you adhere to the dresscode, everybody is welcome, irrespective of the ethnicity, gender, size or religion.

Just like in the previous  years,  to revive us after the ball, we will be meeting at Pump Rooms for breakfast on Sunday (booking a table advisable - most of us is booking for around 10am). The food is amazing, the building spectacular and  live classical music playing too - a perfect background for a Victorian matinee:-)

In the previous years we would add more activities before or after the ball - picnics, carriage rides, boating trips - I will keep you posted what the plans involve for next year...

All the updates will be posted on  in private facebook event  for ticke tholders.

The tickets for the ball and the workshop can be purchased in our shop  - available soon!

Additional information:


 We will practice most dances during the workshop, and they will be also explained , and called at the ball  -so  don't worry about your abilities, just join in, most of them are simple and easy to follow. If you have ever danced at a Georgian or a Regency ball, Victorian is not that much different:-
