Locations: Our class venues in 2016 will be the East Oxford Community Centre (44 Prices Street, OX4 1DD) and the East Oxford Primary School (Union St, Oxford OX4 1JP) which are within 3min walking distance of each other. For maximum dance enjoyment over the weekend the classes will start after lunch and therefore allow you to have recovered from the night before!
The Friday night social will be held at the St Columba’s Church (Alfred St, Oxford OX1 4EH), followed by a Blues after party with live music at The Royal Blenheim pub (13 St Ebbes St, Oxford OX1 1PT).
The Saturday night social will be located at the Oxford Deaf and Hard of Hearing Centre, located in the centre of town on the corner of Littlegate Street and Albion Place (St Ebbes, OX1 1RL).
The weekend will conclude with a chilled-out Sunday evening dance at the James Street Tavern (47-48 James St, Oxford OX4 1EU, just off Cowley Road).
