Brightangothon 2016

For the weekend of the 28th – 30th October 2016 we’ll be making our second trip to Brightangothon in Hove near Brighton. I’ll be playing on Saturday afternoon and Bärbel will DJ the Sunday evening. Bärbel will be running a workshop between noon and 1pm on Saturday. And if you can’t make the whole weekend you can book individual milongas or workshops. Michael Lavocah will also be DJ’ing and presenting a workshop based around his new book about Osvaldo Pugliese.
