Victoriana is Alive and Well at the Larnach Castle Winter Ball 2013

 

Locals and visitors alike can’t fail to be enchanted by the glamour and magic of a Larnach Castle Winter Ball. In celebration of Dunedin’s Scottish heritage, the castle pulls out all the stops to create a night of Victorian pomp and circumstance, with delicious food, ‘called dances’ and the haggis ceremony. Everyone receives a glass of champagne on arrival before being ‘formally announced’. Whether you see yourself as a lady, countess, duke or colonel, be prepared! If you want to take a spin on the dance floor or simply mingle and celebrate your inner Victorian nobleman (or woman), then the yearly winter ball is for you!

Make way for the dashing gentlemen in uniform.
