The Fancy Ball

We invite you to a grand fancy ball at Bath Assembly Rooms. Don your fanciest outfit and enjoy an evening of two halves.

  • Booking essential

Bring your friends and have a fun evening made of two halves. Start the night by having a go at dancing and playing cards like the Georgians. Embellish your outfit at the accessories wardrobe or try make-up styles from the time. You'll be able to take time out from the ball to explore the pop-up exhibition and grab refreshments from the bar.

Later, hit the dance floor for a more modern form of assembly, sound tracked by a local DJ.

Whilst the Fancy Ball is inspired by Georgian fancy dress balls, there's no requirement for you to dress in Georgian costume – although welcomed. Rummage through your wardrobe and find your fanciest outfit to wear, if you wish you can embellish it with a themed twist. Perhaps you might like to turn that silver sequined dress into a moon and stars outfit with a homemade headdress, or jazz up those chinos with a stylish jacket and DIY decorated hat.

Please take a look at the Dressing Fancy article in the about section for more inspiration on what to wear.

Standard adult tickets £15. Concession adult tickets £9. Concession tickets are designed to allow everyone access. If you cannot pay the standard ticket price at this time, this ticket type is for you. No need to explain or prove why, it’s there if you need it.

Tickets include entry and one complimentary drink from the bar. We've been able to keep all ticket prices low due to the generous funding from our supporters.
