Where We’re At
Aston University, in the heart of Birmingham, is the setting for the majority of the weekend. We are delighted to have secured some fantastic facilities – complete with sprung wooden floors, a mirrored studio (perfect for our Authentic Jazz tracks) and handily placed for easy access to cafes, bars, restaurants and even an on-site supermarket. When you’re not taking classes, or dancing the night away, you will enjoy the lovely scenic gardens and pleasant environs of the campus.
Aston University is within walking distance of attractions such as Grand Central and the Bullring, and even has it’s own conference and leisure centre if you’re looking for some on-site accommodation.
Below is a handy map to our workshop and social venues plus a few of the coffee shops and eateries on-site. The centre of Birmingham is right outside the doors if you want to explore. One of our top tips is 200 degrees coffee on Colmore Row. Great coffee and creative sandwiches that are a must – try!
*Note: We really aren’t kidding. We have secured some wonderful facilities. As such, please be respectful with your choice of footwear. No sneakers that will leave marks and certainly no stilettos that might damage the floor will be allowed. We’re lucky to have these venues and would love to be able to use them again in future.
Advance registrations have now closed but if you would like to join us for social dancing there will be tickets available on the door!
