The ‘new’ Bournemouth Blues Retreat

2nd June 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4th June 2017 @ 5:00 pm

How excited are we!!

Our Bournemouth Retreat continues… But now we’re at The Queens Hotel!

All the things you’ve come to know and love about our fabulous Blues Retreats – with a few added extras!

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 if there is enough demand for a Sunday stay then I will negotiate this with the hotel.

We have exclusive use of the ballroom – with it’s very large aircon units… And we have an extra area where we can hold our daytime classes. 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 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 continue.
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 30th Nov 2016, 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 October.
(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 NEW Bournemouth Blues Retreat!
