The eleven piece young, skilled and dynamic Alex Mendham Dance Orchestra are the most exciting dance orchestra in the UK today. The last time I went to hear them paly at the Savoy the dance floor was rather small, but I have been told they are enlarging it for this event.
It's not easy getiing reservations for the dinner. The last time I had all sorts of palaver sending scans of my credit card, etc, so this time I went to the Savoy and paid in cash, but could only get a table for two, not three as I had requested. Their phone number is[masked] and they will probably tell you they are fully booked. They said this to my friend last time but I still got a table a few days later,
The dance is offciallly black tie but about 1/3 of the men last time had ignored this request. This is the most fun and fashionable dance event in London and I hope all our members come, especiallyas they can get into the bar for free, but please don't turn up in jeans and a tee shirt.
