From the moment you arrive the tea flows and to take the edge of your journey your folk will be served some savoury canapés. There’s a fully licensed bar where you can purchase the usual wines, beers and spirits at reasonable prices without breaking the bank and you’re welcome to warm up with a dance or two before the show starts at 12.45pm.

Our Master of Ceremonies will soon break the ice ready for a wonderful afternoon with their warm hearted  comedy and gently reverential impressions of Strictly favourites.

Then our professional dance couple make their entrance. Sit back to enjoy the spectacle of ballroom dancing at its best. During the afternoon our dancers will present a number of demonstration dances, offer some professional tips and share some style and technique secrets.

They will invite your folk to take to the floor and showcase their own skills - or lack of them! Folk can dance with the professionals and remember that the name of our game today is fun. We aim to infuse your folk with the feel good factor and send them home whistling. Just take a look at the smiles in these photographs from past Strictly Tea Dances.

The show is in two halves of one hour. At the end of Act One at 2.00pm we will serve our impressive afternoon tea and your members are once more invited to take to the floor throughout the 45 minute interval for some traditional tea dancing fun.

For Act Two we go Latin! Our professional dance couple sweep once more on to the floor with a spectacular demonstration dance followed by more fun and games with members of the audience invited to take to the floor. Throughout the afternoon Master of Ceremonies Chris Wheeler moves everything along at a nice clip and the tea continues to flow.

Your folk will love the exciting finale - whether they get up and join us or watch the action this is a beautifully produced warm hearted afternoon of beauty and laughter that your members will be thrilled with.
