Club History

Just over 50 years ago a new church hall had been built on the Grove Estate Bridgnorth by the local Anglican Church & was becoming available for hire  to outside organisations. A few friends met together & decided it would be a good idea to form what was then to be known as an old time dance club. Dancing had become a very popular activity, particularly in Shropshire where many clubs met weekly or monthly & these clubs each visited each other on a regular basis. Visits were made to Shrewsbury to dances held at the Silhouette Factory, The Music Hall Shrewsbury, Ludlow Town hall, Mullers Sports & Social Club Cleobury Mortimer, Sankeys Social Club Wellington & many other village halls throughout the county.

Over the years 'Old Time Dancing' began to loose its appeal to a younger generation of dancers , St James Club began to promote 'Modern Sequence Dancing' which was becoming popular & has remained so over the ensuing years.

Whilst we don not claim to teach dancing we are noted for being a very welcoming club & our members will help newcomers until they gain confidence.

A few years ago we celebrated our 50th anniversary with a buffet dance & a diner for all our members, which was attended by fifty members & friends including two of our original founder members.

Our club holds full public liability insurance together with the required licence for public playing of recorded music.
