 Playford Ball

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.  An extensive two course buffet of cold meats, salads and desserts is provided during the interval.  The picture shows our 2006 Ball at Edensor, with Alan Davies calling and Folkus Pocus providing the music.  There are videos of our 2014 Ball on the Videos page.
