Rowans Hospice Charity is delighted to announce that our Rowans Does Strictly LIVE show will be held on Saturday, 22 January 2022 at Portsmouth Guildhall.
Our eleven ‘Strictly Stars’ have been waiting patiently to get back into the dance studio to resume their lessons and they cannot wait to chasse onto the dancefloor and perform either a Latin or Ballroom dance to our celebrity judges and you, our fantastic audience.
Join us for an evening of sequins and showbiz to find out who will be crowned the Rowans does Strictly Winners 2022 and win the Glitterball Trophy.
Before our Strictly Stars take to the dance floor, the wonderful unique female duo ‘The Estelles’ will open the show, with all of the best Motown, Soul & Pop.
The Rowans does Strictly LIVE show promises to be a night of ‘fab-u-lous’ fun and entertainment. Not only will our Strictly Stars be performing their couples dances, but they have also been practicing the perfect Paso Doble to wow the crowds.
During the interval why not order your drinks at the bar and then sit back and enjoy the Rowans Hospice Charity fashion show. The Charity’s Retail team will showcase a sample of the wonderful clothes and accessories you can find in our Charity shops.
Your safety, and that of our patients, staff and volunteers remains ours and Portsmouth Guildhall’s priority. A range of measures and requirements that will continue to help keep us all, and our families, safe have been implemented at the Portsmouth Guildhall and will be in place for the Rowans Does Strictly LIVE Show, however they are subject to change and may be updated at short notice as required, either by the Rowans Hospice Charity or Portsmouth Guildhall.
