As part of our 10 year celebrations Platform is delighted to host this traditional tea dance led by a live band. With dance instructors on hand, tea, cakes, guest vocalists and more than enough quicksteps, foxtrots and waltzes to satisfy first-timers and veterans alike.
Our auditorium will be transformed into an amazing ballroom featuring beautiful handmade art works and objects created by local people in collaboration with our artist in residence, Deirdre Nelson.
The tea dance is also a part of Luminate: Scotland’s creative ageing festival. Luminate is an annual festival that takes place across the length and breadth of Scotland each October, offering the chance to celebrate creativity, share stories and to explore what ageing means to all of us.
