French Musette and Tango Social Dance - La Guinguette aux Moineaux

The French Musette Social Dance La Guinguette aux Moineaux celebrate Bastille Day!

La Guinguette aux Moineaux
Sunday 13 July
doors open 3pm music until 7:30pm 
followed by World Cup Final on large screen at 8pm
Brasserie Toulouse Lautrec 
140 Newington Butts London SE11 4RN

Put on your best vintage or contemporary outfit and come dance the French java and valse musette as well as the tango and rumba to the sound of the accordion with live musicians the way the French do on a sunny summer Sunday afternoon at La Guinguette aux Moineaux

All are welcome!  Whether you are an advanced tango and rumba dancer or a complete novice, you can dance the French java, it’s so easy to dance and great fun! 

Traditional Guinguettes are establishments where the French come to dance, drink and eat typical French food such as moules et frites and chase their troubles away!  

In the great atmosphere of Brasserie Toulouse Lautrec, a stone’s throw from Elephant and Castle or Kennington tube station, La Guinguette aux Moineaux is an authentic vintage Bal Musette with bunting and live music.   Accordion, guitar and double bass accompany chanteuse Carolyn Saint-Pé from The Sparrows of Paris and will transport you in time and place to France in the 1930s to 50s.  

On the occasion of the Bastille Day weekend celebrations at Brasserie Toulouse Lautrec sponsored by Meteor, the French beer from Alsace, each ticket will entitle you to 1/2 pint of Meteor beer free of charge! 

Be sure to dress up to participate in our Fabulous Elegance Contest to win a prize sponsored by a Thomas Farthing, Vintage Style Clothing Store (  You can enter either as: 

• The Most Fabulously Elegant Vintage Outfit!

• The Most Fabulously Elegant Contemporary Outfit!

• The Most Fabulously Crazy Outfit! 

Let’s not forget surprise entertainers which will delight you throughout the event!

After the party you can stay to watch the Final of the World Cup at 8pm on the large screen provided for you in the loft space of Brasserie Toulouse Lautrec.

The French Musette Party at La Guinguette aux Moineaux is about to start, all we need is you!
