Come Dancing with Congleton’s Town Mayor!

Congleton Town Mayor is starting the year off on the right foot with a fun afternoon of dancing, afternoon tea and entertainment to raise funds for the town mayor’s charities. Congleton residents are invited to join the mayor at the quintessential event on Sunday 26 February in the Town Hall.

For 2023, the traditional mayor’s ball has been replaced with the Strictly High Tea event, to make it more affordable for all. The High Tea Dance will take place in the beautiful surroundings of the majestic Grand Hall from 2.30pm-5.30pm. Tickets are on sale now from the Congleton Information Centre priced at £20 per person. The ticket price includes a traditional afternoon tea consisting of sandwiches, cakes, pastries, scones and freshly brewed tea or coffee. The Strictly Come Dancing will be hosted by talented local duo Andrew & Jenny Bell of Love to Dance.

Musicians from Congleton Youth Orchestra* will entertain guests with a string quartet and a small group of cast members from the Trinity Amateur Operatic Society will be performing some well known Elvis numbers from their forthcoming production of ‘All Shook Up’. 25-29 April, Daneside Theatre, Congleton. Not forgetting the dancing and afternoon tea!

Congleton Town Mayor, Cllr Margaret Gartside said: “Get ready for a lovely afternoon filled with fun, food, and friends. Don your favourite high tea attire and join me to raise funds for Congleton based charities. Everybody is invited, however tickets are limited to 100 so don’t miss out! There will be a charity raffle with fantastic prizes up for grabs. Don’t worry if you have two left feet, the dancing is optional! Enjoy modern and traditional sequence dances with the amazing Andrew Bell. It promises to be a truly special event, I hope as many people as possible can join me to support the fund raiser.”

Tickets are available from the Congleton Information Centre inside the Town Hall. Call into reception or tel: 01260 270350 (ext. 1) or email: info@congleton-tc.gov.uk

*Congleton Youth Orchestra has been part of the local youth music scene for nearly 30 years. During this time many young musicians have gained the valuable experience of playing their chosen instrument in an orchestral environment.

Congleton Youth Orchestra provides the opportunity to widen these activities and to be part of their overall music experience through being a member of the Intermediate Group or for more experienced players, the Senior Orchestra.

Both ensembles meet for rehearsals on Saturday mornings during term time at Trinity Methodist Church, Wagg Street, Congleton  playing a variety of music. They perform three end of school term concerts each year. Find out more via: www.congleton-youth-orchestra.org or contact the secretary@congleton-youth-orchestra.org
