We had a fantastic day trip over to Grays Civic Hall in Essex yesterday for the Victory Tea Dance, where we were transported back to the 1940s – the place was set out just like a dance hall would have been, with the big band up on stage, tables all around and a huge open dancefloor.

We were entertained by the M7 Dance Band with cabaret from Annie Riley, Le’arna Castle, Lloyd Ellery, Mike Marandi, Viv the Spiv, special guest Scott Elvis, and not forgetting the host, Micky Driver. We all had so much fun dancing the afternoon away and enjoying a delicious afternoon tea.

We can’t wait for next year’s dance already!
