Step into the sinister side of Christmas at The Midwinter Ball
Step into the sinister side of Christmas as Kensington Palace will host a one-off, spectacular ball to remember: a unique night of music, magic, and performances in the majestic setting of the Palace’s beautiful 18th century Orangery.
Dress to impress – Snow Queens and Jack Frosts welcome – for an unforgettable evening of Midwinter Magic. Escape artists, fire hula hooping, magic and mind-reading will test your nerves throughout the evening.
Music from all over the world will fill the Orangery to transform this Midwinter Masquerade into ball like none the Palace has seen in its long history. Acts will include Balkan, Klezmer, Ska, Turkish, Russian and Latin flavoured tunes from 13-piece Balkan brass ensemble the Trans-Siberian March Band, Julian Gaskell and his Ragged Trousered Philanthropists – providing everything from punk accordion to piano torch ballads, and Latin inspired guitar and violin tunes from Con Fuoco Duo.
The dancing begins with The Last Tuesday Society’s classical DJ Troylus Searll, ending only when the curtain falls at 11.30.

Doors open at 19.30, carriages 23.30
