Tango Calor

A collective of wonderful musicians who share a love for Argentine tango.

Tango Calor was set up by bandoneon player Mirek Salmon (BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Welsh National Opera, RSC) in 2016.

For this concert Mirek will be joined by guitar virtuoso Daryl Kellie described by D’Addario Strings as ‘Truly stunning’ and sensational vocalist Indira Roman.

Together they will take you on a journey from the classic tango of 1930s Buenos Aires to the beloved music of Astor Piazzolla and may even include some surprise versions of more contemporary hits. Expect romance, passion and fireworks.

'A great punching combo that combines tradition with Nuevo flavours. One of the best tango trios you will hear in the UK without a doubt' Eduardo Bozzo, Tango Alchemy

​'As professional teachers and hosts, if you want dancers to be out of their seats and enjoy great music, Tango Calor really does that' Joanna & James Whitehead, Viva la dance

Acoustic Guitar - Absolute Beginners

Led by Jim Maving

This is a foundation course for those with little to no experience of playing guitar. You will learn how to hold a guitar and to make the right noises out of it. The aim of these lessons is to get you playing your first song within 4 weeks of lessons, as no-one takes up guitar to strum random chords, it’s all about the songs.

Bring Baby Choir

Singing is a great way to relieve stress and promote well-being.

Meet new people and take some time for you in this new acappella choir for mums, dads, grandparents, carers and their babies!

It is a baby friendly class, created especially so you can bring the baby you care for. Grown ups are in a semi circle (with room for your buggy next to you) and babies can sit, crawl or play on the blanket in front of you.

These uplifting classes are led by conductor/composer (and mum) Marta Radwan. There's no auditions, no singing experience is needed and you don't need to have a 'good voice' - just an openness to have a go! You'll be sure to know the songs and there will even be some which include your little one.

There's also:
* Free on-site parking
* Café (open all day)
* Baby changing facilities

Mums, Dads, Grandparents, Carers all welcome with their babies under 18 months
