Tweed Ball Series Background

This is the 47th year of the Tweed Ball Series run by the Tweed Combined Country Halls Association, a voluntary group that runs the series not-for–profit, with the proceeds going to the local Hall.  There are nine Balls in the series this year and we look forward to meeting new and familiar faces on the dance floor.

The evenings start at 8pm and tickets are available at the door, adults $10, 13-17 years $5, 3-12 years $2, this includes supper.  The evening is planned to have something for all the family with no alcohol.  The dances are mainly ‘old time’ with a few new vogue, a short set of rock’n’roll, and some old favourite line dances.  The dress code is semi-formal, but many of the girls go formal.  You may participate in the title dance which is a Pride of Erin, or choose to just watch.  After the titles dance there is a supper break provided by the local hall included in your admission price.  The evenings conclude between 11.30 and midnight.  The live music is provided by the band Trilogy.

For those interested in entering the competition they need to be prepared to attend the Final Ball on August 11th 2018, and if declared the Tweed winners come to the Series in 2019.  The age and categories are;

Tiny Tot Miss to 9 years inclusive
