Vic-Wells Dance Correspondence

Scope and Content

Correspondence and financial details relating to the Vic-Wells Dance (also known as the Vic-Wells Costume Ball). This was an annual event involving a fancy dress ball to raise money for the Sadler’s Wells and Old Vic theatres.

The correspondence also relates to a planned new Vic-Wells Dance in 1958 (evening dress rather than fancy dress) which was proposed to replace the previous costume ball. This event was however cancelled.

Financial records are also included detailing the income and expenditure of the Ball.
