Tea Dance 2019

Our most recent Tea Dance took place on Sunday 1st December 2019, and it was the 14th year running that the event has been held in the magnificent Great Room of the JW Marriott Grosvenor House London.

As always it was a hugely popular event and 1,000 Westminster residents enjoyed an afternoon tea while being entertained by the wonderful sound of the Red Stripe band. There was a performance from singer Arrun Harker, and the students from the Sylvia Young Theatre School sang and danced a Carnaby Street medley. The Travellin' Shedders ukulele band entertained the crowd with a sing-a-long and professional dancers Rashmi Becker, Lawrence James and Laura Jones performed a quickstep and waltz.

As in the past, we awarded a luxury hamper to the oldest person in the room, generously gifted to us by Fortnum & Mason - nobody does hampers better!

For many years now the Tea Dance has been joined by Police Cadets who dance with the ladies – the cadets even take a dance lesson beforehand to ensure they know their waltz from their quickstep.

We are as ever grateful to our generous sponsor, Shaftesbury PLC, Fortnum & Mason for the hamper and to the Grosvenor House team, who look after us so well. Finally the event could not run smoothly without the help of dozens of volunteers, including Councillors and Westminster City Council staff and friends.
