for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer

communities of Yorkshire and beyond.

Balls, tea-dances and special events.


We live in strange times and much thought and negotiation went into the management of risk for our Spring Tea Dance on Sunday 15th March. We decided that it was safer to cancel it.

Victoria Hall agreed a postponement to 15th November 2020, which happens to be the Maestro's birthday.

Interlude Tea Room had baked and we are compensating them but are having trouble getting them to take anything. We are inviting them back for November. If you're out and about in Shipley in the daytime and fancy a coffee and a bun, visit Interlude on Westgate.

We have contacted all ticket holders and will get refunds to people who want them pdq.

Many of our dancers have opted to keep their tickets for November's rescheduled event, the Winter Warming Tea Dance and we hope to see all of our friends there safe and well.

See you in November.
