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, follow or even dance with another, 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.

A UK Charity? We're going through the process of becoming one. Sooooon ....

Playing with us is fun, free and sociable.

Listening and dancing to us is a delight.

Our next event is a tea dance. Check it out
