Move Over Strictly – Pick Your Partner For The Punjana Tea Dances

Jamie Thompson of Thompson’s Family Teas was in Belfast recently to kick off the hugely popular Punjana Tea Dance series of events which are set to take place in venues across the city during the month of October.

The Punjana Tea Dances form part of Positive Ageing Month during which classes, workshops, events and activities, all aimed at those aged 60 and over, will be staged.

Jamie Thompson commented: “We have been delighted to see how popular the Punjana Tea Dances have become since they were first launched in 2013, and also how much enjoyment they bring to local communities.

Punjana, born and blended in Belfast since 1896, is proud to have played a very special part in the history of the city, and the series of Punjana Tea Dances offers a fabulous opportunity to relive the glorious dance hall days.”

Amy Quigley from Belfast proved to be the perfect partner to help kick off the series of events.

  • Belfast Castle – Wednesday 11th October 12pm – 2pm and 3pm – 5pm
  • Grosvenor Hall, Glengall Street – Monday 23rd October 12pm – 2pm and 3pm – 5pm
