When did you last look like a Duke or a Duchess?
All internal hierarchies magically disappear when you dress up in our 18th century poches, polonaises, culottes and just-au-corps. This is a theme dinner that is a guaranteed success with all conferences, birthday parties, jubilee celebrations, and even weddings.
We own more than 230 gorgeous rococo-style dresses of high quality, and we can rent additional dresses from an external theater studio when necessary. This event suits smaller as well as larger groups, and the dresses' magical powers brighten up any dinner. Regardless of a guest's size, we guarantee we have it! From XS to XXXL. Everyone deserves to be dressed up in these beautiful outfits. There is also some flexibility due to a very clever lacing system, thus it is not necessary to find ones exact size. We have had 18th century balls for 160 guests without having to rent additional dresses from the outside theater studio.
The arrival to the Castle is most impressive for the guests. While entering the red carpet, our canoneers fire gun salutes from real 17th century guns. Our servers are dressed up in historical outfits as well, to enhance the general impression of your event. Once inside the Castle, you will be met by the most beautifully decorated dinner arrangements.
We have specially designed menus for the 18th century costume balls where you can select your own starter, main course and dessert
We have several 18th century costume ball offerings. We can add the ball to an already booked full-board conference, and we can also offer it without accommodation if you so desire. Just let us know what you are interested in and we will revert back to you within short. For the very best result, we recommend that you have one of our toast masters to guide you through the evening and entertain the guests - we have very skillful and experienced toast masters available.

The greatest impact is achieved when the ball comes as a surprise for the guests. We have some very subtle methods to find out the guests' various sizes in beforehand.
"My colleagues and I were lyrical and hysterically giggly after the 18th century costume ball at Sundbyholm Castle on September 3rd. It was absolutely fantastic. We will remember this for a very long time. We have been to conferences almost every year for 20 years with different themes. This is the best and most hilarious one. It will be difficult to top."

Most of our 18th century costume balls are booked by conferences. Arne Göransson and Marie Brydolf-Göransson had their 18th century rococo-style wedding at Sundbyholm Castle in August of 2010. See photos from the wedding below. Fotographer: Jenny Ericson.
