Event details
Winter has ended and the time for celebration is here.  It is time once again for the Black Rose Ball.

This year the ball promises to be something special:

Lord Maurin has planned an entertaining list of dances that everyone is sure to enjoy.  The ball will include something for everyone, from the experienced dancer to those who have never danced before.  For novice and experienced alike, there will be dance instruction during the day to familiarize attendees with the dances to be performed.  The Waytes of Carolingia will once more bring their skill with wind and string to delight the dancers.

Lord Fergus Redmead has agreed to grace our kitchen with his considerable culinary skill.  He and his dedicated staff of kitcheners will provide a wonderful repast to fortify us before the evening's exertions.  Aside from the dayboard, this year Lord Fergus will be presenting a feast highlighting late medieval German cuisine that is not to be missed. 
Please note that there will only be 150 seats available for this feast, so reservations are required.

As always, the ball will feature the court of His Excellency, Baron Eloi Abelard who will be joined this year by Their Royal Majesties, Kenric II and Avelina II.  Court will precede the ball, so don't be late!

Music and dance, food and drink, good friends and hearty laughter, all this awaits you in the Barony of the Bridge.  Join us for this most venerable of balls, the longest continuously held dance event in the known world, now in its thirty-seventh year, the Black Rose Ball.
