Where: City Hall, Cork
When: Sunday 27th January 2019 3.00pm-5.30pm
A January ‘Gathering’ of young and old, from communities all over Cork and beyond who love to dance, will take to the floor in City Hall, to the ‘Savoy Hotel’ style music of Evelyn Grant (RTÉ Lyric fm) and the Cork Pops Orchestra. The Lord Mayor’s Tea Dance, hosted by Cllr. Mick Finn, Lord Mayor of Cork, is a not-for-profit initiative organised by a local committee of people from the public, private and voluntary sectors. The committee is chaired by Dr. Andrew Crosbie.
Previous Tea Dances have proven to be great fun and the need for these events is greater now than ever before. These dances recognise the role of a previous generation and offer a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge this contribution at the start of 2019. Young people are invited to bring an older person or a group of older people to the ‘Ball’.
Entertainment is provided by the Cork Pops Orchestra conducted by Evelyn Grant. Dancers can enjoy a range of music from Johann Strauss to Abba and demonstrate their dancing skills in waltzes, tangos, two-steps, swing dancing and a bit of rock ‘n’ roll! The orchestra will be joined by special guest Phoebe Dipple who starred as ‘Snow White’ in the Opera house Pantomime last year.
Tickets €10 Pro Musica Oliver Plunkett St., Cork
