“In the Ballroom” in 2018

The monthly welcoming social group “In the Ballroom” has proved extremely popular and it will continue throughout 2018. And starting in January, it will be on the first Thursday of each month – easy to remember!

These afternoon gatherings are held from 2pm – 4.30pm in the Jury Street Court House ballroom, and feature a talk or an activity and sometimes a quiz; then tea, coffee and a selection of cakes served by Unlocking Warwick volunteers. There’s plenty of time to chat and make new friends. Entry is just £2. There’s no need to book. Just drop in!

Here’s the line-up of activities for the first half of the year. 4th January: Local historian and author Graham Sutherland talks about ‘The Darker Side of Warwick’.  1st February: Returning by popular demand – a Beetledrive. 1st March: A talk about the restoration of Guy’s Cliffe Walled Garden5th April: Photographs and memories of Warwick – bring your old photos. 3rd May: Local historian Trevor Langley will present ‘Hidden Depths’ – a talk about our local canals. 7th June: A talk about the Warwickshire Yeomanry Museum.

In the Ballroom is brought to you by The Town Council and Unlocking Warwick, the Court House volunteer group. It is supported by the Big Lottery ‘Awards for All’ and The King Henry VIII Endowed Trust.
