If you like to come in period attire (as many of us do) we are suggesting Regency dress, or any period of your choosing that does not require hoop skirts or the wearing of swords. The hall is a wee bit small to accommodate large skirts or weaponry.

If you prefer to come in modern dress (as many of us do) we merely suggest that you wear something nice and fun to dance in.
