The Inaugural Annual Dance Affair - 2022 Seasons

You’re invited to the ultimate night at the Dance Hall!

Part theatre performance, part invitation to get up and dance, this is an all ages event that immerses everyone in an evening of old time and new time dance floor magic.

Created with and for the local community, The Inaugural Annual Dance Affair is a celebration of dance culture and local history, featuring a cracking live band, a charming emcee, light footed guest stars and heart-warming real stories from local community legends.

By the end of the night your dance card will be full, and you’ll be armed with the ultimate tool kit of essential dancing moves. There will be prizes, supper and of course, a meat tray, plus a Belle of the Ball award so get out your best threads and get ready to shine!

No dance experience necessary, this is a great night out for everyone.

You can find out more about the touring history of The Inaugural Annual Dance Affair Here.
