THE nostalgic sounds of ballroom music will return to the Guildhall in Chard.

West Country couple Henry and Jeannie Clark – the Dancing Duo – have booked the venue for two Saturday evenings to host social dance events.

People will have the chance to join other dancers from neighbouring counties and dress up for a colourful Rainbow Ball on Saturday, September 6, and again for the Autumn Serenade Ball on October 4.

The October event will include a harvest draw for the regional cardiac care charity Heartswell South West to which the duo and their dancers have already given £14,000.

The Dancing Duo are known for their well-organised events and choice of recorded music, specialising in ballroom, Latin, jive, sequence and some line dancing.

If the initial events are a success, they hope to return to the Guildhall for more events later in the year.

The dances run from 8-11pm and tickets are £6 on the door.

Teas and coffee will be provided but people can take their own soft drinks and snacks.
