Jamie and Claire Fraser request the honour of your company at a country
dance ball at their home in Paris to rally support for the Rightful King of
the United Kingdom of England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland - His Majesty
King James III. Our guest of honour will be our True King's son and heir -
Bonnie Prince Charlie himself. *
Our excellent Sassenach band,
Bangers & Mash,
will play our favorite country dances from
both Scotland and England and some courtly tunes from the French
Court as well that new dance we've just learnt from the Germans, the Valse.
There will be a pre-ball dance class
at 7 pm and all country dances will be taught and called at the ball. No
18th Century costume (French
or English), historical or traditional Scottish costume, or modern evening
dress is admired but not required. For costume inspiration, you may want to
watch the "Outlander" miniseries, though you may also want to go to
Frock Flicks and read the amusing and informative historical reviews of
the "Outlander" costumes for some useful costume tips.
There will be a no host bar and we'll be serving light
refreshments (your potluck contributions will be greatly appreciated).
* And if we're lucky, we might actually talk our
Prince out of it!
