Expectations of Guests


Guests are asked to take a lateral flow test before attending The Dressmakers Ball to ensure that everyone is safe and no one is inadvertently passing on the virus.

Guests do not have to show proof of vaccination status to attend the ball, however we do support vaccinations and encourage everyone who is able to have theirs to do so.

Guests are welcome to make and wear a facemask at the ball.  It provides a fun opportunity to accessorise your outfit with a matching mask.

All guests are politely reminded to respect other peoples personal space and remain aware that people have different comfort zones within public spaces.  Please be thoughtful as you enjoy the ball.

Tickets are non-refundable, but they are transferable. In the event that you are not able to attend the ball, due to Covid or other reasons, you are welcome to sell on or gift your ticket.  Please inform us in writing as soon as possible, and no later than the 30th September 2022.
