Following the popularity of the dancing at Retrofestival Ray has arranged a professional swing dance tutorial. Details below:


Portafold Swing Dance weekend with Professional Tuition 6th, 7th, 8th October at a Venue just South of Swindon.

Get your dancing shoes on and be part of the Portafold dance troupe !


Ever wanted to dance to the music in the Spitfire Tent at Retrofestival? We have the opportunity to have a weekend away (in the Portafold, campervan or hotel/B&B) with swing dance tuition from Erica and Cliff who run Swing Out Swindon ( http://www.swingoutswindon.co.uk ). This is the couple that were leading most of the dancers over the Retrofestival weekend in the Spitfire Tent.

This is a great opportunity but we need more interest to make it viable.

We're opening it up to the Retro Caravan Club to try and boost the numbers. We need to make a decision at the end of this week to go for it or try again early next year.

Here is the poster for the Swing Dance event on 19th May.

The all day ticket is £20.00 That includes the workshops and the dance.

If you just want to attend the dance that's £8.00

The price for just the workshop is £20, so you might as well hang around and stay for the dance.

The Caravan pitches are extra at £9 per caravan, per night. Friday and Saturday nights are available.
