York Coronation Ball

7 May @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm


Hosted by His Majesty’s Sheriff of York at the Grand Assembly Rooms, this promises to be a fitting royal celebration to mark the King’s Coronation and formal accession to the Throne.


Built in 1730 by Lord Burlington as the hottest venue in Georgian Yorkshire, the Assembly Rooms is the perfect location for this auspicious occasion, having previously played host to the late Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation Ball in 1953.


Enjoy a sparkling wine reception under the glittering chandeliers, before taking your seat at the banqueting table for a wonderful 3 course dinner.


After we have sung the national anthem and toasted ‘The King’, you can relax in the many decadent spaces this majestic building has to offer, or dance the night away to the 20-piece Big Band 106.

Our Chief Guest will be His Majesty’s Vice Lord-Lieutenant Chris Legard Esq. DL of Scampston Hall.

Carriages at 11pm.


Dress to impress, Black Tie and Ball Gowns. Decorations and badges of offices may be worn.


During dinner a raffle will take place in aid of the Sheriff’s cost-of-living appeal.


A full bar is available. Table wine may be purchased on the evening.


Our Italian inspired menu:

Fan of Melon with Raspberry Coulis


Sea bass fillet baked with baby potatoes, tomatoes, mushrooms, spinach and a white wine sauce.


Oven baked prosciutto-wrapped chicken breast in a creamy mushroom and marsala wine sauce, served on a bed of tender kale and sauteed mushrooms.


Goat’s cheese and tomato crostini, served on a bed of spinach and quinoa mixed with green beans, asparagus, peas, pine nuts and basil, all tossed in a sweet mustard dressing and topped with grilled peppers. Can be served without goats cheese as a vegan option.


A showcase of specially selected desserts to share, tasters of our classic tiramisu, gooey chocolate brownie, Italian biscuits, raspberry sorbet, salted caramel panna cotta and American cherries & mascarpone.


We look forward to seeing you for what promises to be a memorable and historic occasion!
