Skilled and slick calling of Rhodri Davies - with the superb Buddy System from USA. Sample on line, a very recent youtube contra dance video -


Julie plays there with another buddy, Noah. Her awesome buddy here is Audrey of Audacious (at Halsway and Alcester Contra in November.)

On the door: £11.50 (extra £1 for American players) (Students: £6.50). Expect lively dancing. Room layout does allow you to comfortably sit out occasional dances.

Ask at the door, ASK to save £2 for your FIRST attendance. Bring a new friend along to a dance: you EACH save £2.

You may also - up to 2 days in advance - email an "I will be there" (details on the website) to save £1.50. At a previous dance, you can always join the "I will be there" list for the same saving.


Main venue conveniently near M42 J5. Spacious hall: Large, free, enclosed car park. Travellers are welcomed from 1.30pm with inclusive hot drink & biscuits.
