This event will take place in person. To gain entry to this event, we require you to take a free NHS lateral flow test the night before/morning of the event and log the result on the NHS website or NHS app. You can find tests on the NHS website. Please make sure you have your NHS confirmation email/app showing a negative result to hand as you will be asked to show proof of confirmation of your negative test before being admitted to the event.
Starting off the evening with a short taster lesson, teacher and raconteur extraordinaire Nick Miles (Star Dance Club, Ballroom Blitz, Royal Festival Hall) will play the best Ballroom and Latin tunes to get you on the floor and keep you there.
We want our evenings to be truly social, ensuring all newcomers and regulars feel at home and get to dance, whether or not they bring a partner.
That’s why, as a new feature, there will be dance hosts at every Bishopsgate Ballroom. Look out for these friendly faces, ready to welcome you and help you get on the floor. Whether you’ve come alone or with a group, everyone’s welcome to dance with our hosts. Now there’s no reason to be a wallflower, unless you want to be…
Please also note the new earlier 22:30 finish time, allowing everyone to make those final trains home.
- Tickets are £10/8 and only available in advance.
