The glitz and glamour of Hollywood inspired the Saturday afternoon dance which celebrated the Oscar-winning film La La Land starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling.

Dressed in their best, with many girls donning bright yellow dresses in homage to Emma Stone's character Mia, people of all ages took to the dancefloor for the social foxtrot, swing dancing, the tango and more.

They also enjoyed watching the Ragroof Players dazzle with routines performed to songs from the movie including Another Day of Sun and City of Stars. Mini-masterclasses were also part of the fun as well as, of course, time for tea and cake.

Today's tea dance will have a South American vibe and feature an array of Latin dance classics including the Rumba, Mambo, Samba and more.
