Milonga La Ideal at ALSO/ booking for Warwick mini-fest/ diary
This Friday, 5th July, Milonga "La Ideal" is NOT at Warwick SPACE.
Milonga "La Ideal" is in the ALSO Festival, https://www.also-festival.com, just South of Leamington Spa, and it is also called "Milonga ALSO".
The address is: Park Farm, Compton Verney, Warwick. CV35 9HJ. A very useful access map is attached. Directions are on their web site.
The guest star DJ will be David Thomas, also of "Getting to Know: Twenty Tango Orchestras " fame.
Dancing will be on a wooden floor, in a substantial marquee, suitable for any weather, the "Dining Tent". Drink and food can be purchased there or elsewhere. No BYOB please. Glass is banned anyway.
Cost: £10. Pre-registration requested, by either clicking "going" on the face book event page, or emailing tangowarks @ gmail. com, subject "Milonga ALSO" giving names of dancers. Do not reply to this message; replies get lost. It is not essential but may save your having to prove you are a dancer, eg by naming 5 orchestras from our DJ's book. It does not commit you beyond normal.
Parking : Free car park.
On arrival: from car park get a bracelet for the milonga. Then a short walk to dining tent and pay £10. See site map attached.
Non-dancing guests can come for £20, preferably paid before via their web site but OK at gate. They get full access to the festival for Friday evening as do you.
6.30-7.30pm: Taster class by Gosia & Dawid Polak designed for Festival goers, but please join in if you can get there in time to help Dawid & Gosia enthuse their students.
7.30-8 pm: Time for G&D's graduates to practise, discuss, and generally fraternise and dance with the visiting tangueros--so again try to be there if you can!
8pm -12.30 am (approx): Milonga.
Departure: it may be a bit dark getting to your car, though the Box Office at the car park entrance will be lit and so make your way clear. The site is not big but a torch or camera light may be useful.
Dress: How about "glamourous tango" if you are in the mood. Our venue, the Dining Tent should be fairly glamourous.
The Festival: is acclaimed as one of the best of the UK's outdooor summer festivals. See their web site. You might like to bring friends and stay for the weekend?
THE WEATHER LOOOKS GOOD: THE EVENT SHOULD BE VERY GOOD!! Do come if you can.
