The popular social teas called ‘In The Ballroom’ will return in March after a short break during the dark winter afternoons, and there will be an extra social tea each month featuring board games.
Ann Lettis from Unlocking Warwick said, “On the second Wednesday of each month at 2pm, ‘In The Ballroom’ will return with tea, coffee and cake, a talk, a quiz, and plenty of time to chat, in the elegant surroundings of the Regency ballroom on the first floor. We have a super line-up of guest speakers this year, starting on March 8th with ‘The Church of Treasures’ with Tim Clark. The local historian will give us a preview of his book relating the history of St. Mary’s, Warwick, as it celebrates its 900th anniversary.
These social gatherings have proved extremely popular in recent years, so at 2pm on the fourth Tuesday of each month, starting on March 28th, there will also be ‘Ballroom Board Games’ with tea or coffee and cake.”
Sue Rigby, the organiser of the table-top games afternoons in the ballroom, said, “Dominoes, whist, ludo, whatever you prefer will be available at our Ballroom Board Games afternoons. And we hope guests will enjoy competing, chatting and perhaps making new friends.
We must limit the numbers at both ‘In The Ballroom’ and ‘Ballroom Board Games’, to avoid overcrowding, so we are asking residents to reserve their places in advance by popping into the Visitor Information Centre, or phoning them on 01926 492212. Or email either firstname.lastname@example.org or George.Palmer@warwicktowncouncil.org.uk
It will cost just £3 per person for ‘In The Ballroom’ and £2 for the Board Games afternoon, to include the tea – cash on the door please. We are looking forward very much to these friendly fun afternoons in the Court House”.
