Have you ever wished you could dress up the way they did in the 1800s and dance the night away at a fancy ball? Thanks to the Bridgerton ball making its way to a "secret ballroom in Montreal" in early 2022, you have the chance to live out this fantasy.
Get your finest outfit ready for "The Queen's Ball," which will be taking place from January 29 to February 20, 2022. French sessions are happening from January 29 to February 6 and February 16 to 20 and English sessions from February 8 to 15.
This immersive experience of the hit TV series Bridgerton lasts 90 minutes and is going to take the form of an actual ball complete with music, dancing, interactive experiences, performances, cocktails and more. Tickets are $45 and up.
Montreal is the only Canadian city this ball will be taking place in, so we should feel rather grateful to have been chosen by Her Majesty.
Attendees of the ball can see actors dressed in period costumes, make their way through interactive rooms decorated in Regency-era style and listen to a live string quartet playing the Bridgerton soundtrack.
The Queen's Ball: A Bridgerton Experience
When: French sessions: January 29 to February 6 and February 16 to 20
Presented by Netflix, Shondaland and Fever, The Queen's Ball: A Bridgerton Experience lets participants relive the main character's story. How? With actors dressed in period costumes, interactive rooms decorated in Regency-era style and a live string quartet playing the Bridgerton soundtrack in the background.
"Attendees will be acquainted with familiar characters to relive and participate in much-loved moments from Netflix and Shondaland's hit series," reads a press release from Netflix.
The experience includes a trip to Madame Delacroix's modiste to get fitted for the occasion, as well as a stop at an underground Regency-era painting studio, where guests can "strike their most regal pose." Then comes a "highly-anticipated visit with the Queen" to try to win her favour.
Yes, that does mean one of you could be named the season's diamond!
