Weekend Planner: Ball

Saturday’s WGBY Masterpiece Ball in Celebration of Downton Abbey at the Log Cabin in Holyoke promises a re-creation of the last dinner served aboard the Titanic. A cocktail hour with oysters on the half-shell and roast squab with wilted cress (6 p.m.) will be followed by a five-course meal featuring Filet Mignon Lili, Roast Lamb with Mint Sauce and Saute of Chicken Lyonnaise (7 p.m.). Also on the menu: dancing to British and American period music with the Masterpiece Ballroom Orchestra under the direction of Jeffery Holmes (7:30-10 p.m.); an exhibition dance demonstration (8 p.m.); a period fashion show (8:30); dessert and coffee (9:30); and an advance screening of “Downton Abbey” Episode 1, Season 3 (first hour only). In keeping with the class system, tickets are either $100 or $250, the latter entitling you to a seat at the Manor Table and service by liveried footmen and a sommelier. Online ticket sales close at noon today. wgby.org/downtonabbey
