Event details

Grosvenor House, A JW Marriott Hotel, 86-90 Park Lane, W1K 7TN

Deadline for applications: Friday 20 October 2017

Take a look at last year’s event in our video:

The event is for Westminster residents aged 65 and over. We particularly welcome people who haven’t been before or those who are coming on their own – lots of people do so there are plenty of people to chat to.


There are 1,000 tickets available. If there are more applications than people applying, spaces will be allocated in a prize draw. We also give tickets to organisations to pass on to people who may not otherwise have a chance to get out.

If you know someone who lives in Westminster and you think would appreciate an afternoon at the Tea Dance, please do let them know about it. You can accompany them if they need assistance to come along.

This year the Westminster Tea Dance will be hosted by the Sir Simon Milton Foundation.
