If you are having withdrawal symptoms from the ever popular TV dancing show on a Saturday night, then there is an event in Daventry bringing some hot glitterball action to Daventry Leisure Centre.

Strictly Daventry 2017 is being organised by the Kate Fisher Dance Academy and will be raising funds for Danetre Hospital and the Helping Harry Trust.
A number of well known Daventry personalities will be strutting their stuff on the dance floor on Saturday, July 1, with the event starting at 7pm.

Kate Fisher said: "Everyone is working very hard to put on a fabulous event, each contestant learns a Latin and ballroom dance to perform on the night and they're all exceeding my expectations Experienced dancers will also put on a brilliant demonstration while the votes are being counted."

Town councillors Aiden Ramsey and Carl Busby, Reverend Jay Phelps, Parker Academy teacher Rob Flint, singer Jay Bush, dental nurse Lydia Herrington, Neil Piercey, Jo Davies and Daventry barber Ian Southon.

The dancers are Beth Higginson, Courtney Thomas, Libby Kirk, Lottie Mann, Mandy Heritage, Sheldon Kane, Tiegan McCann and Toby Young.

The event comes to Daventry under the umbrella of Daventry Arts Festival, a two week celebration of music, art, theatre and workshops for the entire family organised by Daventry Town Council.
Tickets for the event cost £15 for adults and £7 for children under the age of 16.
