The themed Tea Dances brought to you by the Ragroof Players offer a truly unique experience as the players in costume and character take you and your guests back to by-gone eras.

Your chosen venue will be transformed into a glamorous ballroom, either inside or out, with a ‘DJ for discerning dancers,’ authentic entertainment, ballroom, Latin and swing dance displays and inclusive dance classes. You can hire this group to bring a stylish and swinging alternative to a simple ‘stop and stare’ form of stage act.
