Dress code

The dress code is dinner jacket / tuxedo & bow tie, cocktail dress or long dress / ball gown. National costume suitable for a black tie function is welcome but anything that may be perceived as a weapon (e.g. the Dirk that is part of the Scots national dress, or any sharp, pointed metallic or glass accessory to national costumes) will be confiscated. These cannot, by law, be returned to the owner on the night. They may, of course, recover them at a later date. Anyone inappropriately dressed will be refused entry (no denim or trainers etc., men must wear a tie).
