Tea Dances & Community Events

Many a quiet library has been enlivened with book addicts transformed into dancers for the day at Jacky’s Tea Dances! Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest and Newham Library Services have booked Jacky to play music, run quizzes, teach a few steps, take music reminiscence and dance history sessions and generally involve people in a love of music and dance.

    Hi Jacky,

    Happy New Year.

    I’m the Event Manager in the Events for London team at the Greater London Authority . I oversee the delivery of a series of free annual events, presented by the Mayor of London on Trafalgar Square including Diwali, Eid, St Patrick’s Day, Vaisakhi and St George’s Day.

    We are currently in the process of programming St George’s day on Sunday 21 April 2023 from 12-6pm and I’d love to speak to you about the possibility of you delivering either an afternoon tea dance, Jacky’s jukebox or something similar on the Square.

    Please do let me know if you are available, interested and please share your contact details so I can get in touch.

    Kind regards,


    1. Hi Anna,
      I dont know if it is too late, but please contact me at Jacjuke@aol.com or 07715421349.
