Autumn Blues Retreat – Bournemouth

October 11 @ 4:00 pm - October 13 @ 5:00 pm

A full weekend of fun and frolics down by sea – dancing, dining, classes, beach time, a little luxury, plenty of giggles and a perfect opportunity to make new friends!

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.

The event runs from Friday at 4pm until Sunday at 5pm. But there is the option to extend your stay and join us for the Sunday night too.

Our ‘meet and mingle’ starts things off in the hotel garden (or 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!We will, of course, still be having our Black Tie Banquet.

Our hugely popular See-the-Sunrise freestyle til 6am will happen again.
As will our Survivor’s photo and our traditional sunrise plodge in the sea.
We’ll definitely have another Blues Nites photoshoot – the theme will be announced nearer the time.
And of course Sunday’s wouldn’t be Sunday without a big ol’ Sunday lunch and lots of lovely afternoon dancing!
