Barn Dance poster

The April, 2018, found us all enjoying a barn dances before, on leaving the venue, being drenched in one of the most violent thunder storms to hit our area for many years. The September dance had over 80 dancers enjoying the evening. The total raised by these two events exceeded 550.

Great fun - see you all again in November.

Our 15th barn dance took place on 4th November, 2017. Seventy people strutted their stuff raising 266 for the charity fund (numbers were down as the date clashed with other events). Well done everyone.

The Barn Dance which took place on 6th May, 2017, with over 90 people (spanning ages from 6 to 76+) who had a very enjoyable evening, resulted in 420 being raised for the Eastleigh Lions Club Charitable Fund.

Our thanks go out to the regular groups which attend - Loose Ends, InSync, Pat's lot, Peggy's lot, and the Shehan gang.

These 6 monthly dances are proving to be very popular with numbers increasing, although there is an overall limit to ensure room for dancing. The profits are averaging over 400 per dance. Our thanks go out to all who attended. Look out for advertising of the next dance.

There is always a wonderful atmosphere, with the dance floor being full for the whole evening. The following pictures can give you some idea of the enjoyment.

Musical movements The band, 'Beyond the Pale', with their caller, Lisa, ensure that the evenings go with a swing.

The evenings routinely end with everyone asking when the next is scheduled.

My thanks go especially to Wendy for undertaking all the catering. Ploughman's suppers for approx 80 people takes some organising.

First Barn Dance 

 Seeking new ways to raise funds for charitable causes the club organised a Barn Dance at the Memorial Hall in Bishopstoke in October 2010.

The evening consisted of dancing to a live band, 'Beyond the Pale', with a caller, Lisa. A ploughman's supper of bread and cheese was also included.

In order to ensure both room for dancing, and sufficient food, entrance was limited to advance ticket purchase.

Over 70 people attended and a great evening was had by all.

The band and caller were great and kept everyone entertained during the evening

It was wonderful to see so many dancing. In many cases three generations were involved. Not a sight you see too often these days.

The event proved successful both socially and financially, with over 400 profit being made for our charity fund.
