CHRISTMAS DANCE

Unfortunately, we have made the decision to cancel our Christmas Dance that was scheduled at the Quinnell Lounge, Parc y Scarlets on Wednesday 22nd December 2021.

Although there has been so much anticipation for the dance, We feel that in these circumstances, it is best to cancel the Dance due to it being so close to Christmas and to the big concerns regarding Omicron. We hope to be able to hold a similar event in the new year or during the Summer.

Everyone who have already paid for a Ticket will be refunded.
