Since there will be no Tango Spa Festival this year Tango Warwick decided to make a splash a mile or so away in the historic town of Warwick. This festivalette will give plenty of time for dancing in exciting and beautiful places, to exciting and beautiful music, with exciting..., together with classes and a performance by no-less than the 2014 World Salon Tango Champion Lorena Gonzalez and Gastón Camejo: exciting and beautiful is not enough to describe them, their dancing, and their classes .

Warwick is one of Britain's prime tourist spots, so if you are not familiar with "the Heart of Britain" "Shakespeare Country" come along and combine tourism with pleasure, maybe even taking in a Shakespeare play at nearby Stratford. If you need more tango on Sunday there are many places to take a further excursion to: we will list them later.

To come by air to Warwick it is simplest to use Birmingham airport, but Heathrow also has good connections. Train connections from London (possibly through very nearby Leamington) are good as they are from the North (probably via Birmingham). The venues are a short walk from Warwick Station and a bus or taxi ride from Leamington Spa station, or Warwick Parkway. Access by road is easy via M40, M6, A46,... There are many B&B's and hotels, and many pleasant places to eat & drink. http://visitwarwick.co.uk
