It’s all change here at Thames Valley Tango this month.
A few months ago we heard that the Trustees of the Baldwin Hall in Eton wanted us to stop using the Hall. Well, that certainly was a shock; we’ve been using the hall for 11 years but apparently they felt able to just give us notice without any discussion. There were letters and emails and, eventually, face to face discussions, but all no no avail. We are out, and the work of developing the very best lessons and milongas in Eton has to end.
Naturally, we were totally gutted by the news. And I mean GUTTED.
We immediately went on a voracious hunt for an alternative venue. But that ain’t easy. Weeks and weeks of searches and visits showed that decent dance venues in East Berkshire are as rare as rocking horse sh*t. Good venues are either wildly expensive, poorly maintained, or totally booked up 7 days a week.
The hunt continues …
