Excellent evening with the Spring Heeled Jacks. Great music and a lovely atmosphere. Everyone young and old loved the dancing and the caller was fantastic in coaxing even the most reluctant dancers onto the floor. The band were very talented and friendly. All our guests said what a great evening they had and and you can't want for more than that.
