This important fundraising event aims to assist the club in catering for its growing membership base of over 600 members, through the development of facilities. A committee has been working hard over the past few weeks and are delighted to announce that 28 individuals have agreed to take to the stage and don their dancing shoes.

Please come and join us on the night, as we reveal our dancing couples not only to the public, but to each other as well.
