FEB 4/5: EDWARDIAN BALL – *POSTPONED*

THE EDWARDIAN BALL

IMPORTANT UPDATE

Salutations Dear Edwardians,

While we had high hopes we would come together in just a few weeks to create a grand Edwardian Revival, now unfortunately is not the moment when we can safely and joyfully do so. Due to spiking Covid case numbers, we regretfully announce the postponement of The Edwardian Ball 2022 to a new, soon to be announced date. This was a very difficult decision for us to make, but ultimately there is nothing more important than our collective safety and ability to enjoy the experience of creating The Edwardian Ball together!

In the words of our esteemed patron saint Edward Gorey, “God knows, there’s enough to worry about without worrying about worrying about things.”

Per our ticket policy, we will not be refunding tickets due to this health and safety-related change and, as promised, all tickets will be honored at our new date. Stay tuned for more information!

With love,

Vau de Vire & The Edwardian Ball

Our featured tale – performed both nights in 2022 – will be Edward Gorey’s playful classic, “The Wuggly Ump.” Once again we join unsuspecting children and fiendish monsters in a tangle of illustrations and mysterious prose, brought to life in an original stage performance by your co-hosts Rosin Coven and Vau de Vire Society. Add in performances by Dark Garden, Kinetic Steam Works, Le Cancan Bijou, our famous Vendor Bazaar, the decadent Museum of Wonders, and many, many musical and theatrical guests each night, and we’ll have a 21st annual weekend that you won’t want to miss!

At 50% capacity, tickets are going quickly: SATURDAY, FEB 5, IS CURRENTLY SOLD OUT. Please note that all ticket sales are final and all sales are non-refundable. If our events are postponed due to health and safety concerns, all tickets will be honored at a future date. Please note that proof of vaccination is required to enter The Regency Ballroom.
