Hungerford Arcade Meets Tap Dancing Diane

Hungerford Arcade’s regular customers, Rob Hames, West Region Co-ordinator for the Guild of Aviation Artists, arrived with his dear friend, Diane Hampstead and told us the fantastic story about Diane (much to her embarrassment).  In her early years, Diane was the fastest tap dancer in Europe and she now runs her own dancing school.

Diane danced a duet with Derek Hartley in the “Turned on Tap” show at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London where they were compared to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Now that is impressive!


Keep those twinkle toes tapping Diane!
