Midsummer Ball 2019

Posted on June 13, 2019

Midsummer Ball 1

Bishopsgate Institute will welcome regular ballroom event attendees and new faces into its Great Hall this June 21, from 7pm to 11pm, for the Midsummer Ball 2019.

As part of its 120th anniversary celebrations in 2014, Bishopsgate revived its 1894 launch event, a grand social dance in the Great Hall in the east London venue, bringing it back as a regular event.

The theme for this year’s extravaganza is formal and fabulous, with live music on the night, as well as returning host DJ Nick Miles, a regular at the Star Dance Club, Ballroom Blitz and Royal Festival Hall.

Dancers of all levels are welcome at this event – whether you lead, follow or both – to spend the evening together in gorgeous surroundings.

This year Bishopsgate is offering reserved table seats – named after some of your favourite dances. Seats at a table are priced at £28; to book, call the box office team on 020 7392 9200 or book in person.
