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.
This year, the food will be provided by
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 ;-)
Pre-order dinner options T.B.A.
The number of tables and available seats at a table is limited and must be pre-booked, either as individual seats or as entire table (sits 10).
Individual table seats and entire tables can be booked separately and are named. Your table seating allocation will be indicated when you arrive at the festival.
There will be a number of chairs around the venue which will be available on a first-come first-served and sharing basis. There is also seating available at the balcony above the dance floor and, although intended for concert-only attendants, full MILONGA LIVE CONCERT attendees will also have access.
