Band night on 7th June: In celebration of World Lindy Hop day (and Frankie Manning's birthday) we are running a special offer for our Tuesday night class on the 7th June. Each dancer who has paid for the class can bring along one non-dancer along for free to try out lindy hop!
We'll also have live music with the wonderful Nina Waits For No Man that night so it will be a great opportunity to get a brilliant taste of our social events as well.
Free entry for non-dancers applies before 7.30pm to join the class and they can stay for the whole night. Only one free entry per paying attendee. Non-dancer here means haven't danced swing before (or for aaaaages) so bring along your folk friend or salsa pal and show them the joys of swing!
**Please do not attend if you have symptoms of COVID-19 **
Partner dancing is back!
There's a drop-in lesson (suitable for beginners) at 7.30 pm, followed by social dancing from 8.30 pm to 10.30 pm.
In our lessons, there’s no need to bring a partner as we rotate partners during the lesson. However, if you bring a partner you want to stay with rather than rotating, that’s also fine.
Please follow our guidelines on COVID-19, in particular:
Please bring shoes which don't have black rubber soles as they mark the light coloured floor in this venue.
The entrance to the church is at the rear, via Epworth Court off King Street. We're up the ramp in the middle of this picture.
Cycle parking is available on King Street near the rear entrance of the church, or at the front of the church on Short Street.
Car parking is free on Jesus Lane and King Street after 6.30 pm, though note that there's a small "residents only" bay nearest the rear entrance of the church on King Street which applies til 8 pm. The nearest paid parking is Grafton West, which costs 80 p per hour in the evenings. Note: there is no parking in the spaces at the rear of the church or in Epworth Court.
