Victoria Leeds will set pulses racing this Valentine’s Day, as it introduces an exclusive Tea Dance this Thursday (14 February). In a nod to years gone by when sweethearts would swing their partner left, rather than swipe right, the shopping centre will transport guests to the 1940s with an afternoon of old-fashioned romance in the middle of the busy arcades.
Local band After Hours Quintet will provide the perfect soundtrack, filling the arcades with a selection of nostalgic favourites and dancers from Swing Dance Leeds will show shoppers how it’s done with captivating mini performances to entertain crowds and encourage shoppers, young and old, to try their hand at a little Lindy Hop, Jive or Quickstep
Jo Coburn, general manager at Victoria Leeds said: “Love is in the air and we’re thrilled to be stepping back in time this Valentine’s Day and warming the hearts of our shoppers with a good, old-fashioned dance. We’d like to invite the people of Leeds to add a spring to their step and join us for what’s sure to be an unforgettable afternoon of family fun, great music and old school romance.“
The Victoria Leeds Valentine’s Day Dance will take place in Victoria Quarter from 12pm – 3pm
