Sunday Evening

Sunday classes will be followed by a Sunday evening tea dance / chance to relax / eat at the Oxford Blue pub on Iffley Road / Marston Street. This is a short walk from the class venue and is a lovely pub that does excellent food and drink with a nice wooden floor, but limited dance space once we are all in there! Please don’t bring your own refreshments and do be prepared to sit and chat too. To avoid overwhelming the kitchen, we will need to pre-order food – order forms will be available on Saturday to make your choice.
