The chance to Tango in Hyde Park in 2019

With permission of The Royal Parks, Mayfair Milonga moves al fresco for a chance to Tango in Hyde Park to dance to the setting summer sun.

So no donations sought. A hug would be nice though.

Notes:

There will be photos and filming including inevitably by members of the public.

I have permission to use the bandstand by The Royal Parks Office but there is no fee agreed so it is not hired. We will, therefore, have to get there early to occupy the space. Help welcome at 15:45 or before to occupy the space.

Bring water. Though The Serpentine Bar and Kitchen is closeby.

There are no chairs. Bring a folding chair or stool if you need to sit. A few can sit on the steps. Or lean against the railings.

Bring old dancing shoes.

The floor is smoothed concrete.

DJ & Organiser: Warren Edwardes

"DJ Warren Edwardes plays silky smooth traditional tango blending energetic 40s Golden Age with romantic 50s Silk Age tunes beyond the plinky plonky squeaky squawky sounds of early recordings.

There will be a slick tsunami alternating rhythmical and lyrical tangos developing from the simple to the complex."
