The perfect time for a tea dance

Have your say

PROFESSIONAL musicians, a tasty selection of teatime treats, and a chance to dance… what better way to start the Christmas season than in the company of Lost Chord?

The magic of the traditional tea dance comes to the Wesley Centre in Maltby on November 23 as Lost Chord, the charity that provides interactive musical experiences for people with dementia, presents its Christmas Tea Dance.

Heading the musical line-up will be acclaimed Australian pianist David Barnard, a regular accompanist for Doncaster diva and Lost Chord patron Lesley Garrett.

He will be joined by singer James Dinsmore, whose credits range from musicals like Annie, Oliver! and Half a Sixpence to appearances with the Carl Rosa Opera Company.

Among the special guests will be Deputy Rotherham Mayor Coun Dave Pickering.

“This is going to be a great afternoon, not only for older people but for anybody who loves great music in a lovely relaxed atmosphere,” said Lord Chord’s Tina Harrison.

Tickets £9 on the door. The centre has wheelchair access.
