It was a very emotional experience. This is a lovely building. This is where my parents met while ballroom dancing in the 1940's. My Uncle took me there and we sneaked into the Ball Room. I'll never forget it.

This just has to be the most wonderful ballroom in the world. It is awesome, having danced there many times over the past years, both to many famous bands and the organ. A few years ago I was tasked to be a volunteer guide for a well know organisation, being a little apprehensive, thought I must get myself very well... More

We had received an invitation to the dungeons party after being in the dungeons earlier that day. There was no extra fee by it was an event that was subject to the date we went (pure coincidence). The detail on the gallery and dress circle artwork is amazing and the gold patterning around the room was incredible. We didn't stay... More

Fabulous experience in this beautiful ballroom. Great to see Wurlitzer organ rising up to stage, two organists we listened to were excellent. Couldn't resist getting up for a twirl on the floor - regular dancers there made us feel very welcome. Tea anc cakes recommended.
