Mr. and Mrs. George Banks request the pleasure of your company at a grand Edwardian ball in honour of their remarkable former nanny Mary Poppins, featuring the truly supercalifragilisticexpialidocious dance music of Bangers & Mash.

Our wonderful band will play an evening of elegant Edwardian ballroom dance music and some sizzling Ragtime from America.   Dance romantic waltzes, lively one-steps, two-steps, and polkas, elegant tangos, quadrilles, and mixers.  Doors open at 6:30 pm and there will be a vintage ballroom dance lesson at 7 pm, followed by dancing to live music from 8 pm to midnight. No partners needed and all set dances and mixers will be taught and called.

Edwardian or 'Teens costume (1900 - 1914) or vintage or modern evening dress is admired but not required, and costumes inspired by the Mary Poppins stories and films are very welcome.  Fashionable people, suffragettes, chimney sweeps, leeries, and other colorful characters from the stories are all welcome.

There will be a no host bar, light refreshments (your potluck contributions will be greatly appreciated by Mrs. Banks' kitchen), and a "Mary Poppins" sing-along at intermission.
