Tea Dancing is back at The Y Theatre

Tea Dancing is back at The Y Theatre

Bring a partner, bring yourself – Tea Dancing is back at The Y Theatre for the first time in decades! Y Theatre will be presenting renowned Blackpool Tower organist John Bowdler who leads the foxtrot, quickstep and tango for an afternoon of tea, cake and a waltz down memory lane. John has spent 29 years as a regular at the Blackpool Tower and now joins The Y in Leicester for two dates Thurs 29th Sept and Thurs 10th Nov.   

The Association Hall was opened by The Marquis of Northampton on 5th December 1900. Originally built as a Christian lecture hall it is now known as The Y, Leicester’s oldest surviving theatre.

It is estimated that more than 1 million service men used Leicester YMCA’s facilities across the city during the years of the First World War, and that more than 1,200 members of Leicester YMCA went on active service.

The East Street building was refurbished and opened by HRH Prince of Wales in 1981 and became a grade 2 listed building in 2001. A theatre with a long history of drama societies, tea dances and shows. This autumn we invite you to Tea Dance just like the locals did in the theatre back in the day!
