Christmas Social - Tuesday, 14th December, 7.15 - 9.30pm!

Dear Dancers 

Our Christmas Social is a FREE event for all regular and beginner dancers who have attended a class since September 2021

DJ Lou Lou Savoy will be entertaining us, as ever, and there will be a mix of ballroom and latin tunes, along with some directed line/sequence dances that all can join in with.  Dancing will start around 7.30pm.

You are encouraged to dress in a Christmassy way (Elves, by tradition, especially welcome) but this is not compulsory!

There will be mince pies and other Covid risk-reduced nibbles as well as bubbles (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and tea/coffee options.  Please bring your own plate and glass/mug to minimise Covid risk and impact on the environment. 

Numbers will be limited due to Covid restrictions so you MUST sign up by 9pm on Sunday, 12th December to be able to attend.  

As ever, you will need to provide proof of a negative lateral flow test to attend.  Looking forward to seeing you there.  And meanwhile......

Keeeeeeeeeep Dancing!!!!

Directions:

By car to Court Farm Studios:  Follow signs from the A27 to Falmer South and cross over the A27.  At the traffic light junction for the University and the Football Stadium, turn left towards Falmer (this is Park Street).  Keep ahead onto East Street (Park St bears sharp left - don't follow the left turn!).  East Street also swings to the left and then there is a small junction - turn right here - Court Farm Studios are clearly signed.  Continue until you come to the barn and car park.

By train to Falmer Station:  - it is a 10-15 min walk around the stadium to Village Way, across the traffic light junction to continue to Falmer via Park St , continue onto East Street and follow the signs for Court Farm Studios

By bus to Falmer:  buses go either to the Village stop (the wrong side of the A27, but there is a footpath over the road!) or to Village Way on Brighton University Campus - both are then short walks along Park Street and East Street to the Studios
