On Saturday 16 June, our Summer Ball will see Over-Seas House transformed for the day, as Cathy and Heathcliff request your company at Wuthering Heights to celebrate the 200th birthday of their beloved Emily Brontë.
With champagne in hand, join your fellow lords, ladies, and debutantes in our garden and meet your favourite characters from this Brontë classic. Our talented actors from Past Pleasures will be immersing guests in the Georgian period as they interact with guests and recreate the tragic love story of Heathcliff and Cathy throughout the evening. Afterwards, head to our banqueting hall for a three-course meal with wine.
Take home a momento of the evening with your very own Georgian selfie. The UK’s most popular silhouette artist Charles Burns, who has cut not one but two portraits of Her Majesty the Queen, will be on hand throughout the evening to capture your striking Georgian profile.
After the final act of the play and dessert, join our actors in the ballroom and try your hand at traditional period dancing. Once your feet are too tired, or you simply prefer the comfort of a nice armchair, relax in the back of the Duke of York Bar and listen to the relaxing melodies of our harpist.
Tickets cost £110 per person or £1,000 for a group of ten, and includes champagne reception, three-course meal and evening entertainment. Book here.
