MORE than 200 Scottish traditional music fans and people who like a dance will be waltzing into Johnstone Town Hall after every ticket for two events at the popular venue was snapped up.

Both the Festive Tea Dance being held on the afternoon of Saturday, December 28 and a Family Ceilidh later in the evening have sold out.

The popular Tea Dance gives people a chance to meet up with friends, have a chat and enjoy a two-step or more around the dance floor. The music is being provided by John Findlay, on the keyboard.

There will be a variety of dancing from ballroom to country and western line dancing.

The Festive Family Ceilidh features an evening of toe-tapping traditional Scottish music and the usual round of ceilidh dances.

Chairperson at Renfrewshire Leisure, Councillor Lisa-Marie Hughes said: “Very soon after we began promoting the ceilidh and tea dance all the tickets were snapped up.

“There will be around 100 lucky ticket holders at each event and we had lots of people wanting to come along even after all the tickets had been sold.

“I’m sure everyone will have a great time and it’s a fun way to round off the old year of 2019.”
