Lindy Circle News - 13th September 2015 Hi all,

We'll be having a temporary change of venue in October. More details below:

1) Swing at the Pilot - Temporary Venue For October
2) New Web Site Galleries/Photos
3) Forthcoming Teaching Schedule


Our venue The Pilot will shortly be undergoing some major refurbishments. The Pilot will be completely closed for 3 weeks in October and our function room will be unavailable for the whole month. We will therefore be moving to another temporary venue for the month of October. We will then return to The Pilot again in November.

Our temporary venue is just down the road at the Crown & Anchor on Chiswick High Road. This is less than a mile away and is convenient for tube & buses, plus free local street parking after 7pm. We will be using the function room upstairs that has a wooden floor and comfortable decor. Their full address is; The Crown & Anchor, 374 Chiswick High Road, Chiswick, London W4 5TA (

In the meantime, we continue at the Pilot for the next few weeks. Here are the dates/venues for the affected period:

15 Sept - The Pilot
22 Sept - The Pilot
29 Sept - The Pilot
06 Oct - The Crown & Anchor
13 Oct - The Crown & Anchor
20 Oct - The Crown & Anchor
27 Oct - The Crown & Anchor
03 Nov onwards - The Pilot

Please see our web site for more details on both the beginners and intermediate classes:

Timings for the night are:

7.30 - 8.20pm Beginners Balboa class
8.30 - 9.20pm Intermediate Balboa class
9.30 - 11pm Social dancing

Price: £8 gets you either one or both classes.
FREE ENTRY for the social dancing after 9.30pm.

Venue: The Pilot, 56 Wellesley Road, Chiswick, London, W4 4BZ.

The Pilot is a lovely venue with a great atmosphere where you can relax with drinks and pub food available throughout the evening. Their function room has a nice wooden floor for dancing. There is free social dancing after 9.30pm which, as always, is open to anyone and all styles of swing dancing.

Note: We are in the separate function room building. Walk through the bar and into the rear garden to find it.
(The nearest tube station is Gunnersbury on the District line.)

Details for this night can always be found on our web Calendar:


Our web site galleries have recently been updated. We've added several new albums including last year's Xmas Party and our recent Publicity photos (there are now a total of 35 albums dating back to year 2000). We've also updated them to work better on touch devices with gesture control. You can now swipe through photos and view individual ones fullscreen with pinch zoom where desired. You can view all our galleries here:

Note: There are also high resolution versions of our publicity photos available for event organisors. These pictures can be used for promotion of events where Dan and Gemma are teaching. You can view these here:
