Celebrate the Gaelic League's exciting revival of traditional Irish music and dance in 1890's London. Join us at an Irish-themed Victorian ball with brilliant dance music by  the celebrated Celtic Fusion band Avalon Rising, who will play a varied program of Victorian ballroom dance music (waltzes, polkas, mazurka waltzes, schottisches, quadrilles, mixers, etc.) and Irish jigs, reels, and other easy Ceili or "party" dances. 

Doors open at 6:30 pm, there will be a pre-ball dance class in Irish Ceili dance at 7 pm, and formal dancing to live music runs from 8 pm to midnight. No partners required and all mixers and set dances will be taught and called at the ball.

Late Victorian evening dress, traditional Irish costume, or modern evening dress is admired but not required.

There will be a no host bar, light refreshments (your potluck contributions will be greatly appreciated), and a demonstration of classic Irish Ceili dance.
