Vincents supports Lytham’s St George’s Day Tea Dance

Local law firm sponsors popular community event

Re-live the good ol’ days and experience a traditional tea dance with friends and family as Lytham celebrates St George’s Day 2019. The annual charity event is being held this year at Lowther Pavilion on Thursday April 25th from 12.30-2pm.

Local law firm Vincents Solicitors is sponsoring the Lytham St George’s Day Tea Dance, covering costs of staging the event so all funds raised go towards this year’s nominated charities. These are Trinity Hospice, ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, and Lowther Pavilion’s refurbishment appeal.

A dance band will be entertaining guests with favourites like the Waltz, Tango and Foxtrot and everyone will be encouraged to get up and have a go. Afternoon tea will be provided by The Villa and is included in the ticket price.

Zoe Fleming, Vincents’ newly arrived private client solicitor at the office in Park Street, is looking forward to getting her dancing shoes on.

Zoe said: “What better way to celebrate St George’s Day than with a traditional afternoon tea and tea dance, the event promises to be a lot of fun. It’s especially an opportunity for older people to come together and re-live those evenings down the dance hall, it will be lovely to see them enjoying twirling around the dancefloor.

“The event is, of course, open to all and I expect the more experienced dancers will be happy to help those younger guests with their moves, and I’m sure they’ll pick up the steps in no time.”

Vincents is inviting many of its Fylde Coast clients and is running a competition to give away two free tickets, worth a total of £30, on its Facebook page. The firm is encouraging people from across Lytham, St Annes and the whole Fylde Coast to come along, to bring an older relative, friend or neighbour that perhaps doesn’t get out as much as they used to, as part of its commitment to tackling loneliness.

Zoe, added: “Events like this are a great for bringing people together and offer that perfect opportunity to invite an older person out for the afternoon.”

The six-day festival includes a series of activities starting on Tuesday April 23rd with a flag raising on Lytham Green. Guests will then be invited to view rare film footage at Lowther Pavilion. The Tea Dance headlines on Thursday April 25th, along with a golf day at St Annes Old Links. The festival closes with a concert at Lowther Pavilion by the Band of the King’s Division on Sunday April 28th.

Tim Lince, one of the organsisers of this year’s event, wants to see the community come out in celebration. He said: “The St George’s Tea Dance is a staple of the festival which is enjoyed by guests every year. It will be a great afternoon’s entertainment and we’re grateful to Vincents and The Villa for all of the support they are providing. It is hoped the tea dance will help to raise several thousands of pounds for our nominated charities, and we look forward to welcoming everyone on April 25th.”

Tickets are £15 for entry, afternoon tea, entertainment and include a charity donation. To book contact Lowther Pavilion on 01253 794 221 or find Vincents Solicitors on Facebook to enter the competition to win two free places.
