Tea lovers near and far are invited to St. Katharine Docks’ annual tea-dancing party on 24th May.
Immerse yourselves in authentic vintage music from the 1920s to the 1950s, glamorous period costumes and dancing displays.
Everyone is welcome to participate, from beginners to advanced dancers, so come along on your own, with your friends, or a partner and enjoy the fun! The lessons with The Ragroof Players will take place between 12pm-3pm.
There is plenty for visitors to get stuck in with during the afternoon, whether watching or participating in the dancing, all are welcome to get involved and enjoy a cup of tea or some delicious Fish & Chips and ice cream from accompanying food stalls.
St Katharine Docks officially opened in 1828 but can trace its history back to the 10th century, and has strong links with the tea industry. The Docks were at the centre of Britain’s roaring commercial trade, handling valuable cargoes from Europe, the West Indies, Africa and the Far East, including sugar, rum, spices and of course, tea.
