FRIENDS SUMMER PARTY

We are repeating the successful formula established over previous years but with a marquee this time!  A BYO Picnic Supper follows a sparkling wine Reception and the post-supper Salsa dancing opportunity, to the music of the ten piece Atlantico  Band, also doubles as a get/keep fit session! Get your tables sorted sooner rather than later because this event sells out quite quickly!
