Give the Christmas left-overs the heave-ho and the telly (and all the half price sofa adverts!) the elbow and head on down to the Winter Garden this Boxing Day to continue the festive fun with 3 hours of music, dance and tea with Chris Mannion.
After the indulgence of Christmas Day is over, it’s a great way to burn off some of those mince pies!
All are welcome on the dance floor to sashay to the sounds of Chris Mannion, or to come and sit on the side and enjoy a cuppa while listening to the music, or just an excuse to escape from the relatives (we are not going to judge!). Expect sequence, swing, foxtrot, quickstep and waltz and many other classic dances, all with a Christmassy twist.
The Winter Garden is a Grade II listed building, designed by architect Henry Currey and built in 1875. The Floral Hall, which boasts one of the largest dance-floors in East Sussex where all Tea Dances are held, was originally used as a skating rink in winter and concert hall in summer. A venue that is stooped in rich history is the perfect place to dance along to the music of days gone by.
So, stretch-out your festive celebrations this year and head to the Boxing Day Tea Dance at the Winter Garden, Eastbourne, Monday 26 December, 2-5pm. Tickets priced £8, including tea and biscuits, can be purchased from Box Office on 01323 412000 or book online.
