All Social Dances are held at The Howard School. The school is situated next to our previous venue (Rainham School for Girls). The Howard School is accessed from the same entrance at the end of Derwent Way, Rainham, ME8 0BX. Instead of turning left into Rainham Girls School, turn right through the gates into the Howard School.

As you go through the main gates to the school, turn left and the hall is ahead of you. Follow the signs to the main reception (large sign above the door saying Howard School) and the hall is situated in that building. Plenty of parking is available outside the hall.

NEXT DANCE: Saturday 15th December Christmas Dance!

Dancing starts at 8pm - 10:50pm. £5.50pp on the door. BYO Drinks.
