Picnic & Tango Al Fresco in Regent's Park

Summer is here - so let's grab the opportunity to tango outdoors!

This meetup has it all - a social picnic, a beginner's lesson, free spectating if you don't want to dance just yet, social dancing, and a demonstration by Los Ocampo.

Don't miss it!

 

11.45 - meet at Regent's Park tube station with a few picnic items/ drinks to have & to share.

12.00 - 13.00 - find a picnic spot near the action.

13.00 - 14.00 - beginner's lesson for those who want to join in, others can continue socialising.

14.00 - 18.00 - dancing (and/or watching)

16.30 - demonstration by Omar & Monica (Los Ocampo)

 

 

Full details on the tango bit (the picnic is just for us) here:

What happens if it rains, what shoes to wear etc here:

It looks like the payment is £10 'at the door' so do bring cash.  NOTE:  if there are enough of us going, I may be able to get us a group rate.

 

Finally:

  • Please treat your 'yes' as a proper commitment.  It is no fun for me waiting for people who don't show or who send a last minute text.
  • Remember that its always much easier to stay at home than to put yourself in a new situation - but we all really really want to meet you! (And what new, exciting things ever came of sitting on the sofa?).

      Hi Bernadette, yes Tanja saved it but I now have it. Do you need it now or can I give it back to you next time?

    Great to see old friends and meet new people yesterday! A very well organised milonga - let's see if we can go to the one in August...

    A wonderful afternoon with a great gratitude to Tanja for organising such an amicable event. I am looking forward to the next one which I belive is Spitafields (be aware of your dance shoes as you will be dancing on paving stones, so leather maybe more appropriate) and after that, the boat on Sunday. Lets hope the sun does its bit

    It was very pleasant to meet nice people and dance tango in such a lovely park.
    The show was very good.

    They have a dance floor which is very smooth and is enclosed by grass verges, however there are still tarmac paths to consider when choosing your change of dancing shoes

    For those who miss the rendez-vous, you can try calling me on my mobile[masked], but just bear in mind that if you come very late, I may be dancing and not be near it! Tanja

  • Charlotte

    Hi Tanja, what shoes should I bring for dancing? Looking forward to Sunday!

  • Perihan

    Hi, I will try my best to get there for the stated time. But I will be teaching a Pilates class in the morning, which may delay me. I very much hope to find you!!!

      I will try and remember to wear my little love tango badge, but it is quite small. Not sure, a rose between the teeth? :)

    Thanks

    Thank you Marco, noted and changed.

    I think the meetup time is incorrect....it should be 11:45am, just before lunchtime. 11:45pm (as stated above) is the same as 23:45, just before midnight. Please can an organizer modify that or someone might show up in the middle of the night.

    Such a shame I can't make this, next time I hope!
