Date: 

Wednesday, 13 November, 2019

Last weekend a glamorous ballroom dancing event took place in The Square shopping centre in partnership with Camberley Theatre and local ballroom dance school ‘Dance Rite’ (www.dancerite.co.uk). 

Experienced dancers and choreographers ran dance workshops for all ages, performed ballroom dance displays and organised a fun Ballroom competition with a 'Strictly Come Dancing' theme.

Lots of people of all ages enjoyed learning some new moves in the workshops and watching the beautiful dances from the professionals.

 

This event is part of our larger 'Camberley Be Enchanted' campaign - a variety of special and unique events in Camberley town centre every weekend leading up to Christmas. www.CamberleyBeEnchanted.com

The Collectively Camberley Christmas Light Switch on event is taking place this Saturday, 16 November, with lots of fun activities taking place across town, culminating the town’s Christmas lights being switched on at approx. 4:30pm on Park Street.

The Camberley Christmas Street Party will take place on Park Street on Saturday 30 November.  We have lots of fun stuff planned including an Elsa, Ana and Olaf meet and greet taking place throughout the day, a walkabout giant reindeer and Christmas Brass Santa’s performing all your favourite festive tunes.

Local retailers will be showcasing what they have on offer over Christmas at all these events and you can find lots of lovely refreshments from Camberley’s pubs, coffee shops and restaurants.
