***** THIS IS A PRIVATE EVENT - ONLY PEOPLE KNOWN BY THE ORGANISERS WILL BE INVITED *****
The Viennese Ball in Brussels 2019 will take place on February 9th, 2019 from 8:15 pm in the Concert Noble, the favourite venue of the Brussels Ball season.
It’s an annual highlight for ball-enthusiasts living in Brussels. Every year during the carnival season, the Austrian Association in Belgium hosts the traditional Viennese ball.
Although it is taking place far from Vienna, this ball is lacking none of the characteristic elements such as the opening of the ball by the young ladies and gentlemen of the Opening Committee, decoration in Austria’s national colours red and white as well as wine and food from Austria, and of course the famous Viennese waltzes, which are played by a live orchestra.
Tickets are by invitation only and by post. Please note that the organisers have told us: "This is a private event. We will not invite people we don't know". So there! Don't even try to get a ticket if they don't know you. Or ask a friend who has an invitation :)
If you're lucky enough to be invited, this is what it will cost you:
• €95 per person with table reservation. A table reservation does not include food or drinks - these can be purchased at the buffet.
• €70 for members of the Austrian Association in Belgium, with table reservation.
• €35 for young people up to and including the age of 30, without table reservation, ID will be checked.
Payments must be made before 22 December 2018.
