Soirée, formerly known as High Society, stands for Saints Historical Appreciation & Period Experiences Society.
Soirée is an inclusive and enthusiastic group of individuals enthralled with old traditions of afternoon tea, balls, classic literature, and period dramas. Originally centred around Jane Austen and the Regency Period, we have expanded to include Gothic, Victorian, Roaring Twenties, and more! We put on movie nights, a monthly book club, baking events, afternoon teas, discussion nights, picnics, and hopefully a "thé dansant" (tea dance) and a formal ball! Follow us on Facebook or Instagram and come along to our upcoming events to learn more!
We also have a subcomittee, Linen and Lace, which teaches 18th and 19th century sewing and crafting practices and explores the fashion of these eras.
