To start Heritage Week 2015 we recall the famous Hard Up World War I fundraising dances of Nelson 1914, remembering that both community spirit and dancing have tremendous health benefits.

Recapturing that optimistic spirit, join us at historic Fairfield House. Enjoy a lively and entertaining evening featuring the ragtime music so popular in this era. You can dance the night away or simply relax and talk in this beautiful setting. Supper and bar available. Feel free to dress up to get into the spirit of the evening and bring your friends.

Tickets from Nelson Council Customer Service Centre from 30 March; Door sales on the night.
