Excellent Venue and floor

Opened in 1929 by the Duke of York, initially as public baths, York Hall is a beautiful neo-Georgian grade II listed building.

York Hall provides the biggest sprung oak floor without pillars in London.

The main hall alone provides over 550m2 of floorspace, with ample space for seating, socialising and dancing.

High-end concert sound

We consider sound quality as the most important technical aspect of our concerts & events. We believe the sound system should serve the musicians first and our budget last.

We have, therefore, employed again our trusted partners in professional concert sound systems with experience in organising some of the biggest concerts in the country.

Intelligent sound management

The chosen high-end sound system is a state-of-the-art intelligent array using automated optimisation to deliver the high quality of sound on the dancefloor while at the site time delivering a clear, high quality sound at the balcony above, with minimum interference from the dancefloor below.

The sound system will be managed and continually reconfigured as necessary by professional sound engineers to ensure the highest possible sound quality.

DJ: Osvaldo Miranda

Osvaldo Miranda was one of the initiators of the historical milonga at "The Dome" in Tufnell Park and its resident DJ for almost 15 years before he moved back to Argentina.

Osvaldo DJ's in various milongas in Buenos Aires as well as in milongas and international festivals in Asia and Europe.

This May, Osvaldo is back to London for this unique event and he is in his usual mood: fiesta!

Fully licenced venue

The venue runs a fully-licensed bar which serves snacks, wine and spirits.

Great food

This year, the food will be provided by
CIBO Eat Italian
an independant family owned Italian restaurant with a strong Sicilian influence.

Apart from the fact that we regularly eat there because their food is great, CIBO has also received only positive comments at other events they catered for us.
BTW: "Cibo" means food in italian ;-)

About the organiser

Tangueando is an Argentine Tango Dance School and events organiser based in Cambridge.

Our goal is to spread knowledge and understanding of Argentine Tango and the culture behind it, so that its rich cultural heritage can be better understood. In this way, through the music and dance of Tango, we hope to build a cultural bridge between Europe and Argentina and connect with each-other within the tango embrace.

About the Event

La Juan D'arienzo

La Juan D'arienzo Tango Orchestra comprises an exciting new generation of tango musicians and was formed in 2012 with the aim of keeping alive the unmistakable style of the composer Juan D'Arienzo.

It is also the only tango orchestra which owns the original scores of Juan D'Arienzo (through his grandson, the leader of Orquesta Tipica La Juan D'arienzo) and which stays true to the Juan D'Arienzo style.

Tango Trio: Los Milonguitas

Los Milonguitas

They are a tango trio with the a clear target: they want to make everyone dance and fill the dance floor!

Influenced by the great orchestras of the Golden Age (Di Sarli, D'Arienzo, Caló), they have adapted some of their versions to the trio fulfilling the interpretative needs of the milongueros, true protagonists of the dance. They also have created their own repertoire.
