IT IS time to take part in one of the East Coast’s biggest and most popular charity events at Bridlington Spa.

The 16th annual dance in aid of Yorkshire Cancer Research will take place on Saturday, March 19, and tickets are now on sale.

Tickets to the event, featuring Todd Miller and the Joe Loss Orchestra backed by The Aces, are £20, or £10 for under 16s, and have contributed to raising more than £101,000 for the charity.

The evening begins at 8pm and offers five hours of live entertainment and dance through to 1am.

“Even if people don’t dance they can sit on the balcony and enjoy the life show,” said organiser Jan Jagger.

Tickets are available from Jan on 01964 542629 or 07990576157, or any committee members.
