Free tea and cakes are served at around 2 pm, The dancers are a mix of locals who many of whom have lived in Spitalfields for yonks, and visitors from other parts of London. The music is good, quicksteps are in abundance, and there's some, but not too much, sequence dancing. When I was there the crowd were friendly, all could dance and were easy and obliging when asked to danceto ask to dance. Several were very good dancers.

    Hi there, I am really sorry I did not make last month's tea dance due to unexpected work commitments. However, I am looking forward to September one and will not miss it! I look forward to meeting you all in person then. Have a good Sunday.
