Hello everybody from Folkestone,
I am from the Netherlands and browsing through some of the photos from my deceased grandfather I found an interesting one. He apparently participated in a "dance match" held in Folkestone in 1951.
The photograph shows a large advertisement reading "Leas Cliff Hall, Folkestone represented by Barbara Morley's team Vs. The Hague".
My grandfather was from The Hague, The Netherlands.
The ad further reads: "Adjudicators include Guy Howard and Stella Williams - Friday 3rd August, 1951. Leslie Baker and his Music with Joyce Clark".
It would be great if somebody has more info about this event, I am guessing dance events like this one were held more often in your town. I am hoping pictures from that day survived the test of time showing my grandfather..
many thanks in advance.
