Bridgerton Spring Ball

Sat-Mon 1-3 October 2022

Step back in time to the Regency Era, circa early 1800s Britain, the time of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice.

Watch, learn and join in with Regency dance to strut your stuff. Prance and prattle to catch a princess’s or prince-charming’s attention.

Anyone okay for croquet?

Book a dress-up and professional photography session and put your poses in the social milieu to let them know you are in town for the season.

Regency costume hire for the photography session is included at $49pp for adult. For details, see

And to really set the scene, you must get an absolutely fabulous NZ Cherry Blossom Festival umbrella.

See the entertainments schedule at Note that Mondays are quieter for those who prefer a more sedate setting.

Finally, relax and recooperate with a High Tea nibbling and natter.

Costumes are available to hire at the festival (you are advised to prebook) or from a selection of fine stores. Alternatively, purchase from various venerable vendors. See

And if you want to be with the in-crowd, hire your very own private tent to be waited on hand and foot in a style fitting to your status. See
