the Lavender Cafe Orchestra

for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer

communities of Yorkshire and beyond.

Balls, tea-dances and special events.

About us

We are a 20 or so musician orchestra formed to play live dance music - that's Latin, ballroom and sequence - at lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgendered and queer community events.

That means that if you don't want society telling you whether you should lead or follow, the Lavender Cafe Orchestra can play for you.

We are non-profit making and the money we make enables us to pay for rehearsal space and cover costs for venue hire and paying our dj's and technicians a proper rate. We make our concessionary tickets as inexpensive as possible.

Playing with us has been fun and sociable and it will be again.

Listening and dancing to us is a delight.

Coronavirus has led to cancellations but we're optimistic for March 13th 2021. Check it out below.

Supported by local business

donations, work and friendship.

We have a constitution, welfare policy and and equity policy.
