Ballroom Social Group

We’re Back!

In The Ballroom Social group, set up by Warwick Town Council, will return in March after being suspended for nearly two years because of Coronavirus restrictions. These events are supported by Heritage Lottery ‘Awards For All Funding,’ The King Henry VIII Endowed Trust and The Court House’s Unlocking Warwick Volunteers

If you have time on your hands and wish to involve yourself in your local community in a beautiful environment, meet new people, or know others who would benefit from getting out a little more; then come to this regular event. Only £3.00 per person, per session, to include tea and cake.

On the second Wednesday of each month at 2pm ‘In The Ballroom’ will be tea with a talk, a quiz and time to chat in the elegant surroundings of the Regency Ballroom. Organiser Ann Lettis said ‘with Covid infection rates gradually falling in the Warwick area, and many of our regular guests keen to resume the monthly gatherings, we have decided to hold our first tea and talk on Wednesday 9th March when local author Graham Sutherland will tell how holidays have changed over the years.’

We must limit the numbers to avoid overcrowding, so this year we are asking residents to reserve their places in advance by calling Warwick Town Council on 01926 411694, or email: George.Palmer@warwicktowncouncil.org.uk. It will cost just £3 per person to include tea and cake (cash paid on the door).

The volunteers will also be bringing back their monthly Tea and Dance Lessons in the Ballroom. These will be the fourth Tuesday of each month from 2pm to 4pm. Organiser Sue Rigby said ‘These enjoyable afternoons are suitable for everyone. If you are new to ballroom dancing, our professional teacher, Chris, will show you the steps of classic dances such as the Waltz, the social Foxtrot and the Tango.’Ballroom dancing seems to have enjoyed a revival thanks to the popularity of Strictly Come Dancing. It is excellent exercise, keeping you supple and it’s good for your posture and balance.’
