Upcoming 2016 events : Castle Bytham Village Hall

Dig out those purple flares and yellow tank tops… on Saturday, March 5th there’s another opportunity to strut your stuff at the Castle Bytham Village Hall.
Forget ‘less is more’, forget ‘this doesn’t match’ … this is the ‘Bad Taste Boogie Night’ and there are no rules!

Studio Disco’s DJ Graham will be playing the greatest tunes from across the decades to fill the dance floor between 8pm and midnight.
Tickets are priced at £12.50 and will include a cold buffet. There’s a licensed bar as well.

The Village Hall Committee and its valued band of helpers are also arranging two other fund-raising events for your diary.

Next up is ‘A Royal Tea Party’ on the afternoon of Sunday, May 15th – to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday.
The aim is to create a street party atmosphere in the hall between 3pm and 6pm. A traditional afternoon tea will be served and musical entertainment provided for a tea dance. Tickets are £10, and there’s a concessionary rate of £7.50 for over 60s and under 14s.

And before we plummet into next winter, Castle Bytham Village Hall will bring back a reminder of sunshine and the Rio Olympics with a ‘Carnival Party Night’ on October 15th. For £17.50 you’ll enjoy a taste of Latin American cuisine, with music provided by a live band.
Tickets to the ‘Bad Taste Boogie’ are on sale now – don’t delay, they are limited in number and will sell out quickly.
To get yours telephone Carol Wright on 01780 411193 or email admin@castlebytham.com.
