The Playford Ball is our big event of the year, and we select from the best callers and bands available.  It is a costume event, with most dancers dressing up in impressive period costumes.  The venue is The Cavendish Hall at Edensor, which is part of the Chatsworth Estate, and just half a mile from Chatsworth House.  A cold buffet of meats and salads, plus desserts, is provided during the interval.  The picture shows our 2006 Ball at Edensor, with Alan Davies calling and Folkus Pocus providing the music.

We limit numbers to 72.  Members can book on Wednesday Club evenings, usually from the 4th Wednesday in May.  For non-members, bookings open on 1st July, and should be made by post, details below.


The hamlet of Edensor is part of the Chatsworth Estate, located on the B6012 between Rowsley and Baslow, not far from the Matlock - Bakewell section of the A6, and about 17 miles from the M1 J29/J30.  There is plenty of parking at the hall.

The postcode is DE45 1PJ.
