This years programme consists of two packages. Both are identical in that they offer a drinks reception and milonga on the Friday evening upstairs in the Town Hall. They both offer 4 workshops and 3 milongas with live music on the Saturday evening. The only difference between the 2 are the teachers offered.

 

The Cumparsita package has the following teachers:

Class 4 with Leo and Tracey

 

The Poema package has the following teachers:

Both packages are £150pp. Secure your place with a £35pp deposit (non refundable) and the balance to be paid 1 month before. Early booking is advisable as places are limited and for the last 2 years we have sold out.
