And there’s an opportunity to join our After Show Party attended by the contestants and their professional dance partners where we will also have a DJ playing for just £10; tickets are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
About the event
The show is based on the TV programme (permission granted from the BBC) where we pair professional dancers up with local business people and supporters of our Charity.
Our event helps us raise much needed funds to continue to offer a first-class pre-Hospital Emergency Medical Service to the people of Essex, Hertfordshire and surrounding areas.
Our guests range from dance schools, theatre and the arts, along with avid Strictly Come Dancing followers and Charity supporters in and around Essex.
