The Winter Ball at Castle d’Ursel is gradually becoming a fine tradition. This year we are welcoming yout again, with flickering candles on the drive, drinks and refreshments in the mirrored room and of course an extensive programme of dances in the hall.
With five musicians playing an accompaniment, three dancing masters will stand ready to guide you in the steps and figures of the dances. In between times you can explore the upper floors of the castle and pose with your party for our house photographer.
For dress code we are returning to the second half of the eighteenth century: embroidered jackets and knee breeches for gentlemen, hoop skirts for ladies and wigs for one and all… .
On Saturday afternoon those who wish can take part in a free dance initiation session at Het Laathof, the youth tourism centre on the castle estate. After the ball you can also stay the night there.
