Tea Dance events with Britten Pears Arts and DanceEast

Join us as we celebrate the Tea Dance with afternoon tea events across the county.

Suffolk Libraries has teamed up with Britten Pears Arts and DanceEast to bring a slice of the fabulous Tea Dance to our libraries in December.

Several libraries will be holding special afternoon tea events, with many including a special screening of Britten Pears’ Christmas Tea Dance and additional activities to get involved with. These events are relaxed and they are designed to be dementia-friendly. Everyone is welcome and anyone can join.

About the Tea Dance

The Tea Dance is a chance for people to get together and celebrate the festive season. The Tea Dance itself is a forty-five-minute film which includes a seven-piece big band, a presenter and professional dancers, which is sure to get everyone’s feet tapping. There will be an opportunity for people to learn some dance moves and sing along too.
