Jamie and Claire Fraser request the honour of your company at a country dance ball at their home in Paris to rally support for the Rightful King of the United Kingdom of England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland - His Majesty King James III. Our guest of honour will be our True King's son and heir - Bonnie Prince Charlie himself. *

Our excellent Sassenach band, Bangers & Mash, will play our favorite country dances from both Scotland and England and some courtly tunes from the French Court as well that new dance we've just learnt from the Germans, the Valse.  There will be a pre-ball dance class at 7 pm and all country dances will be taught and called at the ball. No partners needed. 

18th Century costume (French or English), historical or traditional Scottish costume, or modern evening dress is admired but not required. For costume inspiration, you may want to watch the "Outlander" miniseries, though you may also want to go to Frock Flicks and read the amusing and informative historical reviews of the "Outlander" costumes for some useful costume tips. 

There will be a no host bar and we'll be serving light refreshments (your potluck contributions will be greatly appreciated).  


* And if we're lucky, we might actually talk our Prince out of it!
