Enjoy Music, laughter and dancing in the Noverre Suite at Norwich Assembly House for the 2018 Playford Ball

Dance to Dampier's Round with MC. Frances Richardson.

Ball goers are requested to dress in period or evening attire, there will be a 30 minute interval and a bar will be available through the evening serving tea, coffee and soft drinks as well as something a little stronger.

It is fitting to hold a Playford Ball in the Norwich Assembly House with all its historical associations, for John Playford, a Norfolk man, was a significant and important figure in the promotion of dancing with the collection of dances and their accompanying music which he published from 1651. Several editions followed until c1728. His work helped to keep these dances alive down the centuries to the present day.
