Traditionally people come to the Ball as a ‘party’ and have dinner at the home of their party host. More recently the Committee started offering the option of having dinner at the venue which has proved a popular choice for some hosts.
The Ball commences with a sparkling wine reception at 10pm and dancing begins shortly afterwards.
Between reels there’s the chance to show off your Rock ’n’ Roll or Ballroom dancing skills!
After a hearty breakfast, including bacon and eggs and our famously good kedgeree, reeling continues into the small hours, finishing at 3.30 am as dawn breaks.
The Perth Ball is proud of its glamorous tradition and is keen to maintain formal dress standards.
Traditional HIghland evening dress, i.e. kilt with black or coloured jacket with black tie or lace jabot Or White Tie or Mess Dress. Black tie and tartan trews are also acceptable.
Full length evening dress (to the floor, not mid calf). Tartan clan sashes encouraged. Flat dancing shoes recommended.
It is the responsibility of party Hosts to ensure that their guests respect the dress code. So that standards are maintained, the Committee reserves the right to refuse entry to those who are incorrectly dressed.
