Primavera: The Sheffield Tango Festival

Header_FB Event 2020-2bf

The first Sheffield Tango Festival was held in May 2019, and we were overwhelmed by the amount of positive feedback. Thank you to all the lovely dancers who came to support us.

Our main aim was to offer an event which was friendly and welcoming to all. I think we got pretty close to succeeding, so we’re going to do it again next year… on Friday, Saturday and Sunday 1-3 May 2020, to be precise.

We have listened to all your comments, and after discussion we’ve tweaked a few things, for example, the afternoon dances will be upstairs in the main ballroom.

Booking forms will be available shortly. We’ll add the date and link here as soon as all the tweaks have been tweaked and everything is as simple and straightforward as possible. If you’re on our mailing list you will receive immediate notification of the booking date.

Last year we had to close bookings some time before the event as we had reached capacity. To avoid disappointment, therefore, please book for any workshop or milonga you wish to attend. We cannot accept admissions on the door for any part of the festival once maximum figures have been reached.

We are looking again to provide an appropriate leader/follower balance, especially for workshops. Please try to book with a partner whenever possible, although if you wish to book as a single leader or follower, please do so early. We’ll do our best to accommodate all.

Again, we’ll have great teachers and DJs from Buenos Aires, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. For further details as we add them, check out the menu at the top of the page.

We shall continue to add news and information, pictures and videos so be sure to bookmark this page!

Thank you. See you in May!
