Saturday – The Lanimer Ball
In previous years the Lanimer Ball was held on the evening of Lanimer Day in the County Buildings in Hope Street. Due to the pressure of events on Lanimer Day it was moved to the Tuesday evening before Lanimer Day. It has now been moved to the Saturday at the end of Lanimer Week. Although a formal occasion it is not exclusive and anyone may attend – provided they can obtain a ticket. The ball is a special evening for the Lanimer Queen elect as she is escorted to the event by the Lord Cornet. It is organised and run by the Lord Cornets’ Club.
