The Autumn Blues Retreat – Bournemouth

13th October 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 15th October 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Our first Bournemouth Retreat at The Queens Hotel was, most definitely, a success! All the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive – we have found our new home!

So now we can start to look forward to our Autumn Retreat –
everything that we love about Blues Retreats but with added Autumnness!

The Queens Hotel is fabulous! Only a stone’s throw from the beach and with it’s own spa! (access to the pool, jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and gym all included for our guests…)

The hotel has four floors of accommodation, and there is even the opportunity for guests to upgrade to a suite – if you really want to spoil yourself. (Very limited availability)
We have booked a selection of twins and double rooms for you. And they have all been, or are in the process of, a full and fabulous refurbishment.

We’ll be staying from Friday to Sunday for this event. But you do have the option to extend your stay to include Sunday night too, and enjoy Buckden Blues in Bournemouth with us.

We have exclusive use of the ballroom – with it’s very large aircon units… And as it was so successful last time, we’ll be extending the floor again and making use of all of the space available.
Bring on the afternoon dancing and long, late-night freestyles!

We will, of course, still be having our Black Tie Banquet – with a few little extra treats in store…

And I have checked out the food in the restaurant – you’re gonna love it!!
Breakfast is a ‘help yourself’ buffet, with everything you can wish for. From fresh fruit and cereals, to the fullest of English Breakfasts. They even have nutella and marmite, so I am very happy!
AND… There is a pancake bar for breakfast too! Freshly made in front of you and Oh My Word they are delicious!!

Our ‘meet and mingle’ will happen in the hotel bar (or out in the garden) on Friday from 4pm. A chance to get to know your fellow Blues Retreaters and to start to unwind and relax into your weekend.
We’ll have a selection of Masterclasses on offer over the weekend, aimed at both new and experienced Bluesers.
Saturday and Sunday afternoons are ALL about the daytime dancing.
But of course we’ll squeeze in our annual pilgrimmage to Sprinkles!
Our See-the-Sunrise freestyle til 6am will take place on Saturday night as ever too, as will our Survivor’s photo and our traditional sunrise plodge in the sea.

We’ll definitely have another Blues Nites photoshoot – theme to be decided.
And of course Sunday’s wouldn’t be Sunday without a big ol’ Sunday lunch.

And just when you think things can’t get any better… For early-bird bookers who pay a £40 per person non-refundable deposit before 31st July 2017, we are also going to offer you a £10 per person discount!

Early bird price – £220 per person.
Full price – £230 per person.
(prices based on 2 people sharing in a twin or double room)
We have a VERY limited number of single occupancy rooms available to us which incur a supplement of £30 per person per night.

I have already received a HUGE number of enquiries for the weekend from ladies, so I have decided to run the following system.
Ladies who would like to book and pay a place-holder deposit will be added to our waiting list, and I will allocate and confirm places as they become available. (when guys book…)
If places do not become available for ladies on the waiting list they can choose to either have their place-holder deposit returned – or be put at the top of our waiting list for the next event in 2018
(If your place IS confirmed then the deposit for this event is non-refundable)

Contact Sara to book… (Clicking going on here will show you are interested, but you will need to contact Sara directly to make a booking)

Bring on our Autumn Bournemouth Blues Retreat!
