Last tea dance of the year

THE final tea dance of the year in support of the Royal Hall Restoration Trust takes place next week.

The Sun Pavilion in the Valley Gardens hosts the event on Tuesday, December 6 from 2-4.30pm, with entry £6.50.

The price includes festive refreshments, such as Christmas cake and mince pies, and Terry Wadkin will provide the music.

It is the last tea dance organised by Barbara Simpson, who is stepping down - but the tea dances will continue next year.

She said: “There were great tears when I announced it, but I promised I would still try to go to every one!”
