If showband legend Dave Glover were alive today he would thoroughly approve of the tea dances for older types who are still young at heart which are taking place at the Waterfront Hall on Saturday, June 8 with the first from noon until 2.00pm and the second taking place between 3.00pm-5.00pm.

I remember the late Dave playing for his tea at Belfast Castle in the latter stages of his career and sometimes getting on to the floor himself for a quickstep or a slow waltz with one of the patrons.

The old-fashioned dance afternoon will be part of the Imagine Arts Festival for Older People which is going on at the Waterfront on Saturday, June 8 and and Sunday, June 9.

It will be packed with arts events, performances and workshops for the over 50s, apparently.

Meanwhile, visitors to the Waterfront and The Ulster Hall can enjoy a wide range of art and photographic exhibitions which are taking place, featuring works by local and international artists including home- bred Sean Campbell.
