Enjoy an afternoon filled with music, dance and nostalgia at the annual Vintage Tea Dance put on by St Barnabas Hospice in Grantham.

The event is on Sunday, March 8, 2-5pm, at Walton Girls’ High School, with music provided by popular vintage DJ Major Swing who will play music from the 1930s to 1950s. Vintage vocalist Sarah-Jane will also be making a guest appearance and performing throughout the afternoon.

Guests will indulge in dances from the Palais Glide to swing, in addition to period ballroom and communal dances such as the Gay Gordons. Afternoon tea and home-made cakes will also be available to buy.

Janie McCormick, events fund-raiser for the Barrowby Road hospice, said: “The Vintage Tea Dance is like taking a step back in time. People come from across the county to attend, with many of them choosing to dress in period clothing which adds a great atmosphere to the whole afternoon.”

Tickets can be bought online.

They are priced at £5 for adults and £3.50 for children (16 and under). Tickets can also be bought on the afternoon of the dance and will cost £6 for adults and £4.50 for children.

Janie said: “Last year’s dance was held on Mother’s Day and proved a popular choice for those looking for a gift with a difference. It attracted a diverse group of people and offered our younger guests a taste of the past.”
