17 July 2019
Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Cllr Michaela Boyle has launched the 2019 / 20 ‘Mayor’s Tea Dance Initiative’ at the Guildhall today – and has provided details of the ‘hugely popular’ series of events to be hosted during her term in office.
The 2019 / 20 tea dances in Derry will take place on the first Tuesday of every month – beginning on 3 September 2019. All will be held in the Guildhall’s Main Hall from 2pm to 4pm.
Tea dances will also be taking place in the Alley Theatre, Strabane, beginning with a ‘Summer’ tea dance on Saturday 27 July 2019, as well as ones on 17 August 2019 and 11 January 2020 – also all from 2pm to 4pm.
The 2019 dates for the tea dances at the Guildhall in Derry are as follows: Tuesday 3 September, 1 October, 5 November, 3 December and a special ‘Mayor’s Christmas Tea Dance’ on Tuesday 17 December 2019.
The 2020 dates in the Guildhall are Tuesday 7 January, 4 February, 3 March, 7 April and 5 May.
Mayor Boyle said: “I’m delighted to launch the new round of dates for the 2019 / 20 tea dances.
“These are such popular events – packed with some of the best dancers in town!
“The tea dances also provide me with a great opportunity to enjoy some quality time with older members of the community – and enjoy the ‘craic’ with the regular dancers!
“Indeed, I’ve always been amazed by their energy and sense of fun – which is such an inspiration to all!
“I have no doubts that we’ll see a fantastic turnout for all of the tea dances during my term in office – and that they’ll be hugely enjoyable events for all who attend.”

Tickets will be posted one week before the tea dance. Numbers are limited and your ticket does not guarantee entry – as it will be based on a first-come, first-serve basis on the date of the dance.
