The culmination of all our hard work: the opportunity to don our wigs and perform our beautiful dances! You're welcome to attend any forthcoming public events, but you may need to obtain a ticket first (please follow the link to the venue's own website for more information).
Planning an event? Celebrating a big birthday? Looking for some unusual entertainment for a corporate bash? Get in touch! We love delighting audiences with our dances, and revealing some of the secrets of the Georgian ballroom. You can also find more detailed information about what's involved when you book us, on the 'Book Us' tab.
The more notice you can give us the more likely we are to be able to meet your requirements, so don't hesitate to drop us a line.

Performance at St. Mary's, Bramber ("This spectacular group of dancers, resplendent in their authentic 18th century style costumes, revisits St. Mary’s to entertain us in the elegant setting of our Music Room.

Performing at a wedding in Stratford Upon Avon
Christmas at Osterley Park : We enjoyed doing some short demonstration dances and then instructing a bracing contradanse or two in the beautifully decorated entrance hall. We loved it and, and juding by the feedback, so did our sporting audiences! You can see some taster shots included here.
Copped Hall, Epping (Museums at Night Festival): It's always such a pleasure going back to this lovingly restored Georgian mansion, and we had a magical evening dancing for Museums at Night, sampling all sorts of 18th century delights in the circuit of State Rooms.
Worshipful Company of Fan Makers: Our evening with the lovely Fan Makers was a match made in heaven, as we fluttered and flirted our way through some specially-adapted dances incorporating the 'langauge of the fan' - extra thanks to the Master for being such a good sport!
Georgian Group ball: We had a complete blast at the Georgian Group's Hanoverian Tercentenary Ball, held at a very chic townhouse in Queen Anne's Gate. The guests' costumes were amazing, and we even featured in the March issue of Tatler.
Where might you see the Covent Garden Minuet Company?
The answer is - just about anywhere! We’ve danced in hundreds of places over the years, from palaces, abbeys and stately homes, to slightly less glamorous venues like school gymnasia and even a tennis court! More well-known locations have included:
- Mansion House, Banqueting House, Hampton Court Palace, Osterley Park and the British Museum in London
- Ickworth, Croome, Shugborough, Harewood, Compton Verney and Fairfax House further afield
- Warsaw Castle, Tryon Palace and the Göttingen International Handel Festival overseas
- Filming for BBC4 ('Rococo' with Waldemar Januszczak and 'Dancing Cheek to Cheek' with Len & Lucy), Channel 4 and the History Channel
Of course the 18th century buildings are our favourites – not only do the dances seem to make more sense in a contemporary space, but the doorways are wide enough for our ladies’ dresses!
