Where:Beaufort Room, Falstaff Hotel,
Falstaff Hotel, 16-20 Warwick New Road, Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, CV32 5JQ, Leamington Spa
The car park, and back entrance is off Warwick Place CV32 5DE, on the left when travelling from Leamington to Warwick.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~This Friday 7th December there is Milonga "La Ideal" (Nearly Christmas edition) with a bit of Christmas sparkle, and Luis Rodrigues as DJ. Luis started to DJ when he was 14 but has focussed on dancing since he came to the UK. He nevertheless continued to develop an amazing collection of tango music. His dedication to the music and to dancing with it, which together with Elizabeth's fires their teaching, will ensure a brilliant evening of dancing.
As well as the welcome, smiles, traditional music, and wonderful dances waiting to be had, there will some nibbles, and some wine for early arrivers, but BYOB if you wish.
The milonga starts at 8.30 pm. It will be preceded by class(es) by Luis Rodriguez & Elizabeth Knock at the Falstaff Hotel, a ten minute drive along the road past SPACE into Leamington. See above.
Prices: Milonga £8 ( £5 for students with student id's).
Milonga + Class: £12 (£8)
Warwick SPACE is on the north side of the main road north of the river between Leamington and Warwick. Next to the Millwright Arms and almost opposite a Sainsbury local. It is easily reached from the M40 and A46, and about 10 minutes walk from Warwick Railway Station. It is a major tourist area and there are many hotels and B&B's nearby and hotels etc in Leamington & Warwick.
Parking is plentiful around the venue in residential areas but do not park at the pub next door or in Sainsbury’s – people have been known to be fined there! It is a short walk from Warwick railway station.
Friday 14th December 7pm -10.30 pm will be a purely social dancing & practica event. It is especially hoped it will give an opportunitry for social dancing or practice in a supportive environment to those who have been coming to our earlier classes on Fridays and so not stayed for the regular practicas. Visitors will be very welcome. There will be some cakes, mulled wine, unmauled wine, and cold soft drinks, but you are welcome to bring your own. It would help if some of you could let us know if you expect to come, eg by email or use of the FB event (to appear), so that we know whether to cater for 5 or 55. Why not drop by for a few tandas if you can't stay ?COST: £6 WHERE:
St Mary's Church
St Mary's Rd, Leamington Spa,
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
