Kids’ Disco Party

At the Medway School of Dancing; Tonbridge High Street; Kent. It’s my daughter Jude’s 7th birthday today!! On Saturday she had her disco dance birthday party with all her friends and this is what I thought of it.

It’s that time of year again and my daughter’s 7th birthday party took place on Saturday, with all the girls from her class invited to come along. Jude absolutely loves dancing; and she’s far too good at wiggling her bum in time to music! Everyone’s party seems to be at The Angel Centre lately, so I thought I’d look for something different. Some of the prices quoted for a Dance party were ridiculous; so this seemed the best value at £120. Still more than I hoped to pay, but at least it covered the whole 2 hours party, and the venue too.

It was run by a lady called Lisa, and was helped by a younger girl, (I’m sorry, I can’t remember her name) and they seemed very nice and did the party really well. There was a DJ type booth in the corner of the room where they controlled all the music – slowing it down a bit so that the younger girls could keep up. Lisa did a few games; musical statues and things like that, and also a couple of dance routines and a dance competition.

The kids loved it and I think the party was a big success. Between each game the kids had chance to run around and let off some steam, which was a good idea, but occasionally those gaps went on a bit too long. The only other complaints are that the hall is right at the top of 3 flights of stairs, so the grandparents aren’t going to be keen on that; nor the music which was pretty loud! Also, a man who seemed to be running the dance school, stood and had a cigarette in the bar area in the corner of the room, which I wasn’t too happy about. I didn’t want the kids to go home smelling of smoke; but he didn’t stay so that was ok. The kitchen bit was miniscule and filthy, so make sure all your food is prepared beforehand. And warn your child that she may not win the dancing competition. There were 2 prizes, and I was surprised that the birthday girl didn’t get one of them.

On the whole, I would recommend this party. There doesn’t seem to be a great deal of choice of affordable parties in this area, (unless you’re going to the Angel Centre) and when I was looking around, I found people who charged more than this and then you still had to hire a venue. This turned out to be a good choice. Jude had a great time, and that’s the most important thing.

UK,

A visit to Basildon Park near Reading. Places to visit near the M4
May 12, 2018
Last week we actually had a taster of a social life and drove all the way to London for a friend’s birthday barbecue. I was a lovely weekend, and it was so nice to go to a party and chat to old friends and meet new people. If you know me, then you’ll know this is a bit out of my comfort zone, but I think I managed not to panic and say anything stupid! Anyway, instead of the usual A303 route back to Somerset, we decided to take a slower route beginning with the M4 and then detouring through the English countryside. We stopped for a while at the National Trust property near Reading; Basildon Park…..
The Story Behind the Photographs – Morvah mine
October 8, 2016
Chris and I took two days off work before the bank holiday weekend, and drove the camper-van down to Cornwall. We had three nights and four days away altogether and in that time we saw Jeremy Loops play at Perranporth; met up with family; took several photos for Oshun and for the blog (such as the one at the top of this page); relaxed a bit, and even found time to take some photos just for the fun of it. The great thing about wild camping is that you can wake up right next to the most wonderful wild places, including this ruined tin mine. One of my favourite photos from the day I chose to have blown up and printed onto canvas for our living room. It was a beautiful morning and the pathway towards the sea was just magical….
Beach holiday in Lanzarote
A week in Lanzarote for a Canary Islands winter sun holiday
December 7, 2018
The all-round plan for this holiday was to do as little as possible. Everyone in the family agreed, but admittedly, all had slightly different versions in our minds of what ‘doing nothing’ actually meant! We have never had a holiday like this. In the past it’s all been road trips and busy sight-seeing adventures and after an exhausting week exploring Rome and Venice earlier in the year, we thought we were due a relaxing time away for a change….
