A Victorian tea dance will be held at the Guildhall’s ballroom, where everyone is expected to don outfits of the period - crinoline and bustle dresses for the women and tails or military uniform for the men.

Taking place on Saturday, September 12, from 2.30pm to 6pm, attendees can enjoy quadrilles, couple dances, country dances, waltzes and polkas, all to live music performed by musicians Ruth Travers and Calvin Goymer. It costs £30 per person, which includes dance instruction and afternoon tea.

It is the latest event organised by dance mistress Zsuzsi Dingsdale, who is well-known for her historical balls including those which form part of Stamford’s Georgian Festival.

Those who attend the Victorian tea dance and are fans of the Regency period too, can also join Zsuzsi for a walk at Belton House on Sunday, September 13, again dressed in the costume of the era.

Tickets are limited, with September 8 the deadline for registration and payment.
