14th July 2019 at Croft Memorial Hall: DJ CHRIS BAMBER

Firstly I would like to thank DJ CHRIS BAMBER for helping to make such a success of Tea and Tango’s Sunday Beach tea dance on 14th July 2019 at Croft Memorial Hall.  There were other Argentine tango dance events on that day (some in my own locality) but we held our own with a very successful and happy event.

A few of our own regulars visited us first then moved on to other events to show their support for both organisers (nothing wrong with that) but it was the majority who came (early – they were here at 20 minutes before our official start time!) and stayed for the whole afternoon.  We even had some latecomers to swell our ranks, but as we had a lovely gender mix and more than two thirds of our usual number attending, we were very happy and the dance floor was full almost all the time – except for when the buffet was opened, of course!  Plus the dancers had to rest some time!  Glad I took the fan as it did get hot and all that sunny weather and dancing makes the temperature rise, but it was a delight to see so many happy dancers rotating on the dance floor, and as ever I am so grateful to those who travelled such distances to join us – please do come again as we thoroughly enjoyed embracing you as part of the Tea and Tango family!

DON’T FORGET!!!! We are back at Grappenhall on 26 July with DJ Chris Bamber for our next 50/50 traditional and new tango milonga at The Ow’d Barn, Grappenhall Community Centre, Bellhouse Lane, Grappenhall, Warrington WA4 2SG – just 2 minutes off JUNCTION 20 of the M6. Charming venue with AIR CONDITIONING in the quiet village of Grappenhall with a WOODEN DANCE FLOOR, plenty of seating and tables. Professional sound system and our wonderful DJs provide fantastic tango music and great cortinas.
