The Playford Ball

The Round organises a Playford Ball each year, and invites past and present members of the Round to attend. It is a formal but relaxed chance to pretend you have just stepped out of a Jane Austen novel. All the dances are called, so it isn’t too scary, but some familiarity with the dances is assumed, so if you haven’t done much English country dancing before it would be a good idea to come to some of the regular Thursday meetings during the Easter Term.

The Ball is held on the Saturday following the last day of Cambridge University Easter Full Term, so in 2024 it will be on Saturday 15th June.

Hugh's History of the Round includes some information on the history of the Playford Ball.
