Around 150 adults and children, aged up to 11 years old, boogied away as the venue’s DJ played a mix of chart classics and old Family Disco favourites on Saturday.

Theatre characters Marigold the Pixie and Professor Wait-a-Minute, from an interactive half-term play called ‘Spring into Summer Celebrations’ run by the Tea Dance for Little People company, also turned up at the disco.

Education Officer at Stratford Circus, Becky Lees, said: “They led a few group dances which went down really well with the children.”

A dressing up box, a soft-play chill out area and face painting was also put on for the children.
