The dance evening in full swing at Marlborough Town Hall

First published in News

Revellers in Marlborough danced the night away at the town’s first high society ball at the town hall.

It was organised as the grand finale of the concert and high tea season.

Guests enjoyed music from the Ritz palm court and 1950s Hollywood performed by the High Society Orchestra.

They were also treated to a dance by six times UK Ten Dance Champions Morgan Hemphill and Richard still.

A silent auction and luxury raffle raised around £900 for Wiltshire Air Ambulance and the Finley Foundation.

Organiser Tom Bott said: “We even auctioned off the chance to conduct and perform with the orchestra on the night, which attracted a lot of interest.”

Organisers hope to host another event in the summer.
