Dance in the Parish Hall, Handcross

In common with picture #959, it seems possible that this is another dance in the Parish Hall organised by Tunbridge Wells Equitable Friendly Society, with their representative and his wife seated in the centre of the front row.
I would love to say that the famous lady saxophonist, Ivy Benson, played at Handcross Parish Hall, but the lady pictured here does not have a large all-girl orchestra; just a couple of men, one of whom appears to be giving her a helping hand. Nevertheless, Ivy is worth a view on YouTube.
A Large Version is available and any identifications would be appreciated.
