Yorkshire Blues Retreat – MARCH 2019

March 22 @ 4:00 pm - March 24 @ 5:30 pm

Yorkshire Blues Retreat -MARCH 2019

Heads – Up! Here’s the date for next year’s event – and we already have a huge amount of interest.

As you are aware we do gender balance these events to within reasonable margins, so just clicking ‘going’ will not guarantee that we can offer you a place.
Places will only be confirmed upon receipt of a £40 per person non-refundable deposit, and any solo ladies wishing to attend will be putting onto a list and places confirmed only when guys have booked. The best way to get a place is to book with a guy. I’d like there to be a better, fairer system – but…

This laid-back luxury retreat is for all those with a passion for Blues and expressive, interpretive dancing… This weekend is not to be compared with mass market events currently available. It is also not an event that includes a Blues room as an after-thought or an alternative – this event has Blues running through it in the same way that blood runs through your veins.

So what is a Blues Retreat..?

Our Blues Retreat provides the perfect opportunity to withdraw from daily life for a while and to submerge yourself totally in the delicious world of expressive music and dancing, with people who share your passion – at whatever stage you happen to be on your dance journey.

Fri – Meet & Mingle in the bar, 3 course dinner in the restaurant, midnight snacks and dance, dance, dance!

Sat – Breakfast buffet, workshops/sight-seeing/walking/chilling/dancing all on offer.
Sat Evening – Black-tie Ballroom Banquet.
A 4-course banquet followed by our ‘See the Sunrise’ Freestyle event. N.B.: ‘See the Sunrise’ Freestyle will be open to non-residential guests also.
(2nd dance room with Tango/Funky sets)

Sun – Breakfast buffet, workshop/sight-seeing/chilling/dancing on offer. Sunday lunch followed by a farewell afternoon tea dance.

Included: Bed, (Huge) English Buffet Breakfast (Sat/Sun)
3-course Evening Meal (Fri)
Black-Tie 4-course Ballroom Banquet (Sat) and Sunday lunch. Midnight snacks.
Freestyles on Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon
Use of Spa facilities – pool, sauna, steam room…

Total £245pp based on sharing in a twin or double room (Places secured with a £40 non-refundable deposit)
Please note: There are single rooms available for this event but the hotel charges an additional single person supplement of £25 per night. (£50 total)
If you would like to extend your stay to include the Sunday night, then we can include dinner, bed and breakfast for an additional £70. Our plan is to spend Sunday evening with a nice, mellow session of dancing followed by a chill-out in the bar enjoying a little ‘Weekend Wind Down’.
(We are also offering a Non-Residential package for this event too, for those who may live locally. £145pp to include Fri/Sat/Sun meals, (excluding breakfast/Sat lunch as this is not included for hotel guests either) all workshops/dancing/spa facilities.

This is a very exclusive event, gender balanced, with limited numbers… We’d love you to be one of our special guests…

We can accept deposit payment via BACS or Paypal, please contact Sara White to make a booking.
