Events

It seems that there are more and more events every year. Not all are organised by us but all seem to be a wonderful opportunity to dance and enjoy pleasant company. Our next events are: 


23/2/2019  Ice skating and Winter Ball - Brno
18/5/2019  Empire Day - Čechy pod Kosířem château

************************************************************

We would like to invite you to our next event: 


After a year, we can meet again in the winter, which offers completely different possibilities than the warm months of the year. In Brno we are fortunate that an ice rink has been built in the city centre, right in front of the palace where our ballroom is located. Thus we can again try out how our ancestors may have felt when ice skating in period clothing. We will start the day at 4:00 pm with one hour of skating. It is possible to store things directly on site and also to rent skates.

After that we’ll go to the MorGal café, where we’ll warm up with afternoon tea and we'll share a talk about the traditional handicrafts and pastimes that ladies or gentlemen spent their time doing while indoors. The most active among you can bring along examples of your own crafts with you, and embroider, knit, paint silhouettes or whatever you think of. ;-)

   

In the evening, we will enjoy the usual culmination of the day, a ball with English country dances. If you have any particular dances you’d wish to do, do not hesitate to tell us! :-)

Tickets can be booked via the form below. If you are interested in dinner just before the ball (about 6:30 pm), it is also possible to arrange it at Café MorGal - please tick the appropriate box to book your seats! Ice skating, tea or dinner are paid individualy on the spot.
Tickets for the ball can be reserved with advance payment for CZK 190, -, price at the door is CZK 250, -.

Feel free to forward the poster to your friends or you can also use the FB event. 





Accommodation: Participants coming from afar who prefer a few hours of sleep after the ball before travelling back home can make use of accommodation facilities in the city centre - e.g. the artsy Hostel Mitte or  via Couchsurfing
