Christmas Tango Party Practica: Friday 14th Dec. 7pm to 10.30 pm

No Tango Warwick Classes on Friday 14th. This will be a purely social dancing & practica event. It is designed to give an opportunity for social dancing or practice especially to those who have been coming to our earlier classes on Fridays and so not stayed for the regular practicas; as well as for all levels to have an enjoyable evening.

Juan de Scarfo will provide the music. 😊

Visiting tango dancers will be most welcome.

There will be a drop to drink-- mulled wine, unmauled wine, and cold soft drinks, but you are welcome to bring your own, plus some cake etc. It would help if some of you could let us know if you expect to come, so that we know whether to cater for 30 or 60.
Why not drop by for a few tandas even if you can't stay ?
COST: £6
WHERE: St Mary's Church St Mary's Rd, Leamington Spa, CV31 1JW. It is in the church hall next to the traditional looking church towards the south end of St Mary's Rd. There is a car park by the side of the church and when that is full there is usually ample parking on the nearby roads. Also close to bus routes.

Milonga "La Ideal" (11th Night Edition): Friday 4th January, 7.30 pm -11.30pm

To celebrate the beginning of 2019, and the ending of the Christmas season, we take Tango Warwick's monthly milonga to the supreme elegance of the Warwick Courthouse Ballroom. It is in the centre of the tasteful decorations of historic Warwick.  

Ricardo Peixoto, our resident DJ and co-founder with Su Park of Tango Warwick, will ensure the music and dancing will make the evening slip away too quickly, so the start is earlier than usual. It seems Warwick citizens like an early night so we must finish at 11.30 pm

As well as the usual warm welcome and good vibes, there will be somewhat festive nibbles, and some wine for early arrivers, but BYOB if you wish. The floor is excellent. We aim to make it a very good evening!
WHERE: The Court House Ballroom, Jury Street, Warwick CV34 4EW
COST: £12/£8 for students with student id.

The Court House is on the main street A429 through Warwick above "Information", on the right when going East, opposite the road leading to St Mary's Church. The entrance is on the side road. 

It is about 20 minutes walk from Warwick railway station, less if you go through a park. See Also close to M40 and A46 with its connections to M6, M69, M1 .

Parking has to be hunted for: Jury Street (A429 the main road) itself, by the castle wall, in side streets towards St Mary's Church, or in various car parks eg P1, P2 P3 P4 : 

It has not been a serious problem before.

Warwick is a major tourist centre, and very close to Stratford. There are many hotels and B&B's.
