Royal Wedding 21st Century Tea Dance Party!

Part of (B)old

Come and join us for a tea party like no other.

Entelechy Arts takes the traditional form of a tea dance kicking and screaming into the 21st century.

You are invited to come dressed in your best royal wedding outfit and join this big old family party, for an afternoon of royal wedding-themed delights in a bonanza of dance, music, song and regal fun.

Co-curated with older members of Entelechy Arts Elders Theatre Company, members of Meet Me at the Albany, and artists in the care homes programme Walking through Walls, this event is hosted by Christopher Green and his alter ego, the unforgettable Ida Barr.

Experience a multimedia event of live music, video, theatre, performance, storytelling, singing and dancing.

In this special royal treat, expect music from Jive Five, the Meet Me Choir, a guest performance from older Heart ‘n’ Soul artists, spoken word performances from older poets, aerialist dancers performing with their mothers, sing-alongs, a catwalk, plenty of dancing and of course, a screening of Harry and Meghan’s wedding.

So put on your most regal of glad-rags for the best royal wedding party in town.

Entelechy Arts is a participatory arts company based in Lewisham, London. Their work brings artists and people together, collaborating with marginalised and excluded communities to place arts practice at the heart of a process striving to achieve more equal, connected and engaged communities.
