Lindy Circle News - Heatwave / Summer Break

Given the heatwave, I've decided to cancel this week's Bal Revival. Its sensisble to avoid any possible health risks associated with the heat. Plus, with 40C forecast it would be uncomfortably hot for dancing anyway.

I'd intended taking a summer break in August. I'm therefore going to start this break 2 weeks earlier than planned. We will resume from our summer break on Tuesday 6th September.

I am therefore removing the entries for this week and next from the web site and booking system. Those people that have already booked will be refunded and notifiied directly by email.

After summer break we will continue in our new venue the George and Devonshire pub in Chiswick.

Hope you all have a good summer :)

Lindy Circle News - Bal Revival Continues through May and June in New Venue

Bal Revival continues in the new venue throughout May and June. I have now loaded all dates through to the end of June into the Calendar and Booking system.

Feedback on the George and Devonshire venue has been positive and it's now starting to feel like home. It is still located in Chiswick (address below), and less than a mile away from the previous venue. It's an equally nice pub that is easily reachable by car. The nearest tube is Turnham Green on the District line about 15mins walk away.

As before, you need to pre-book and pay online before turning up. We continue to operate our Covid Safe Space policy. This means that it's still a requirement to show proof of a negative lateral flow test (within 24hrs), to gain entrance to the event.

Lindy Circle News - Bal Revival Continues in New Venue

A quick newsletter as I've had a few queries about the location of this evening's class.

We continue this evening at our new venue (we started there last week).

The new venue is the George and Devonshire pub (address details below). This is still in Chiswick, less than a mile away from the previous venue. It's an equally nice pub that is easily reachable by car. The nearest tube is Turnham Green on the District line. The walk is is a bit further than the previous venue, at around 15 mins.

We will continue at the George and Devonshire until further notice. When our former venue finally repairs the floor then I will consider when/if to return to our former venue.

As before, you need to pre-book and pay online before turning up. We continue to operate our Covid Safe Space policy. This means that it's still a requirement to show proof of a negative lateral flow test (wthin 24hrs), to gain entrance to the event.

Lindy Circle News - Bal Revival Resumes in New Venue

The repairs to our usual venue's floor are taking time. I've therefore found another temporary venue to allow us to resume Bal Revival.

The new venue is the George and Devonshire pub (address details below). This is still in Chiswick, less than a mile away from the previous venue. It's an equally nice pub that is easily reachable by car. The nearest tube is Turnham Green on the District line. The walk is is a bit further than the previous venue, at around 15 mins.

This as a temporary change of venue until our regular venue is able to complete the floor repairs. Nevertheless, I anticipate that we may need to stay with the George and Devonshire for some time. I will review the situation again when I have a firm date for the completion of the floor repairs. In the meantime, I will only release dates on the booking system one week at at time.

I have amended the venue details of the web site and released bookings for next Tuesday 12th April. As before, you need to pre-book and pay online before turning up.

Reminder that we continue to operate our Covid Safe Space policy. This means that it's still a requirement to show proof of a negative lateral flow test (wthin 24hrs), to gain entrance to the event.

Lindy Circle News - Dance Floor Issue

Unfortunately we have a problem with the floor at our venue. I'm therefore having to cancel Bal Revival next Tues 29th March, and perhaps further weeks until the repair is completed.

A water leak has caused two areas of the floor to warp and buckle, making it unusable for dancing. The leak has now been fixed but the damage to the floor will take longer to rectify. The venue expects this to be completed within the next week or two. Thus hopefully it will only be a short break before we are able to resume Bal Revival again.

I have removed this coming Tuesday from the calendar and booking system, and issued refunds. I am witholding all future dates from the calendar and booking system until I have certainty on when the floor repair will be completed.

I will send another newsletter as soon we are ready to resume again...

Lindy Circle News - March Dates

The Bal Revival dates for March have now been added to the site calendar and booking system.

Reminder that you need to pre-book and pay online before turning up. Also that we continue to operate our Covid Safe Space policy. This means that it's still a requirement to show proof of a negative lateral flow test (wthin 24hrs), to gain entrance to the event.

Note: I have sought feeback from a number of you on whether to continue with the Lateral Flow Test requirement. The vast majority felt happier continueing with this for the time being. I also note that many other dance events are still keeping this as a requirement. Lateral flow test kits are still available free from the government through to the end of March. I will review this again over the coming weeks and continue to seek your opinions on this.
