Dancing In The Park – 2023/2024

 Dancing in the Park is held on Monday evenings in summer at an outdoor setting.

DECEMBER 2023 – Monday 4, 11 and 18th
JANUARY 2024 – Monday 8 and 29th

Venue:  Stage 88 in Commonwealth Park.

Stage 88 is covered, so dancing will go ahead come rain or shine.

This is a free community event to which everyone is welcome. However, as we are being charged for use of the venue, a gold coin donations bucket will be out to help defray this cost.

Please note: if you are unwell or have been exposed to Covid, DO NOT attend. You will be required to sanitise hands before and between dances – sanitiser will be provided or bring your own. Wearing of masks and/or gloves is optional and at the wearer’s discretion.
