Life is short. Live in the past.


We plan events that recreate and celebrate the Regency era, the age of Jane Austen, of Admiral Nelson and Napoleon Bonaparte. Join us for one of our excursions into history, or call on us to make your wedding or other special occasion sparkle with the elegance of this beloved era. 

See below for upcoming ticketed events and visit our about us page for our private event-planning services.


Nothing to wear? Fear not! Visit our costumes page for information on renting, ordering, or making one - even with no budget or sewing skills!

Step into your favourite Jane Austen novel, or Master in Commander film, and dance in the stunning Empire Ballroom of Edmonton's historic Macdonald Hotel.


No partner or dance experience required. 


Dance lessons offered in advance of the ball to learn the dances and arrive at the ball ready to party like it really is 1812. Event page.
