You are the Dancing Queen, young and sweet, only seventeen (ok not quite)
Dancing Queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, digging the Dancing Queen

Dancing Queen

On Friday 3rd July 2009, Warwick Castle played host to an all-singing, all-dancing, musical extravaganza with The Music of ABBA – A Pop Symphonic Spectacular.  Featuring a host of talented stars from the West End smash hit musical Mamma Mia, the show brought to life the Swedish supergroup’s best-loved hits with the backing of a full symphony orchestra.
A picnic in the park, 100′s of people gathered together for the festivities in the most beautiful and picturesque surroundings of the delightful Warwick Castle.  My evening was laid back, and colourful, I was lucky enough to enjoy the experience with my 4 year old daughter, who is a huge Mama Mia movie fan…and knows all the words to the songs, as well as my best friends and their girls.
We were well stocked, with chilled Pimms…really sweetie..cucumber sandwiches (you just have too!) and lots of nibbles and chocolates.  So prepared, we even took our own seating with us, just in case the little ones got tired, after dancing the night away, even a tent with blankets, and candelabra, just to give it that romantic touch!

The orchestra was amazing…wherever you were sat, you could hear the ol’ classic ABBA songs, that really truly got you carried away. The evening was really fun, people were dressed up in 70′s fancy dress, there were a few nervous men (believe me they had to be, with the amount of hormones flying around in the fresh air!)  Each song got everyone wanting more, and more, from toddlers to OAP’s, the event with the atmosphere was truly amazing…its really hard to explain, but I just felt on such an amazing high.
Before the evening finished there was a dramatic fireworks finale.  It was huge, over the grounds of the castle, the evening was so mild, the fireworks just looked spectacular.
One of the best evenings of my life, full of fun, dance and laughter, with the people I love most!

You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, digging the Dancing Queen….that was me!
