Londoners and tea lovers alike are invited to a tea-dancing party that St Katharine Docks is throwing on 20th of April 2018, in honour of British National Tea Day.
St Katharine Docks, Central London’s only marina will host the unique event encompassing authentic vintage music from the 1920s to the 1950s, glamorous period costumes and dancing displays, all of which can be washed down with a cup of the nation’s favourite hot beverage.
Visitors have a whole host of reasons to head down to St Katharine Docks to celebrate this annual celebration as Ragroof put on their distinctive dance classes using a number of popular dance rhythms. Everyone from beginners to advanced dancers is welcome to participate so come along on your own, with your friends or a partner and enjoy the fun! The lessons with The Ragroof Players will take place between 12pm-2pm.
St Katharine Docks’ popular Friday Food Market will also be onsite to provide visitors with mouth-watering dishes to help keep up participants’ energy for dancing!
Officially opened in 1828 but tracing its history back to the 10th century, St Katharine Docks celebrates its 190th anniversary this year, and has strong links with the tea industry. Playing a key role in London’s industrial revolution, the Docks was at the centre of Britain’s roaring commercial trade, handling valuable cargoes from Europe, the West Indies, Africa and the Far East, including sugar, rum, spices and of course, tea; making the Docks the perfect location to celebrate British National Tea Day!
