Hi we are Phil & Jacqui and we started in 2016 to raise funds in support of "UPBEAT" the Heart Support Charity for West Suffolk. Reg No 1087415
By organising dances and events at The Delphi Centre in Sudbury for people who love dance, ballroom, Latin, sequence and Swing Jive and even Barn Dances we have been able to present some great evenings with big 17 piece dance bands, Barn Dance bands and singers to entertain and make the evenings really be great. However it looks like our fund raising days are over for sometime as The Delphi Centre is due to close, an email from the chairman of the Not for Profit group has confirmed this on 24th March.
For those who supported this event a big thank you we raised £741 for our charity "UPBEAT" The Heart Support Charity for West Suffolk. See below more details about the event.
Important Announcement : The "Swing into Spring "Dance has now been cancelled, all those who have purchased tickets will be refunded shortly.
It is with great regret that the above Swing Dance will have to be cancelled.
Swing & Lindy are such social dances, changing dancers is all part of the fun; but with the expected spread of coronavirus over the next two weeks we have decided very reluctantly to cancel.
All those who have paid will be refunded in due course.
Unfortunately we will not be able to reschedule the event as The Delphi Centre will be closing completely in July 2020
best wishes, keep safe and wash your hands after touching all surfaces.
Phil & Jacqui Goodyer
Sarah and The Rhythm Riots and DJ Baker Boy were all really looking forward to playing at The Delphi Venue, we have wished them every success for the future and please support her and the band at other events when this virus has passed and we all get back to normal.
