Husky Mary's Too

Friday December 19th 2014       7:00-midnight       £20 pre-booked 


DJ & Music

Lynn Collins


"My aim is to energise, entice and inspire dancers with the music so that hearts are touched and bodies flow in response. With this in mind, I play traditional tracks from the late twenties to early fifties in tandas with cortinas, focusing predominantly on the exquisite treasures of the Golden Age."                                                


The music presented is that which a milonguera or milonguero would be happy to dance to, and will be organized in tandas with cortinas in the TTVTTM format.We reckon the character and personality of the DJ’s have a significant effect on the character and personality of the milonga, and we are very pleased to have Lynn for the evening.

The Venue

Henley Town Hall, Market Place, Henley on Thames  RG9 2AQ

By Car


Cross the bridge into Henley-on-Thames and the Town Hall is straight in front of you within a few hundred yards. Turn right to find the Waitrose car park.



The Waitrose car park is only a couple of minutes walk away, has 340 spaces, and (we are told by the council office) it is free in the evening - head South out of the carpark and there's a little alley beside a second hand furniture shop, and that alley takes you straight through to the Town Hall. And on Grey's Road (come up Market Place and turn left at the hall) there are another 147 spaces.

On the Door

Louise works at the town hall and will be front door security for the evening. She'll have the guest list so you'll need to check in with her when you arrive. If you have any worries then just print your booking and take it with you. Follow the music upstairs for the hall, where we and Bevil and Fiona Chantiloupe will give you a warm welcome.


We aim for a flowing dance floor as well as a balance of people dancing the Tanguera and Tanguero roles. As such, numbers are limited and booking in advance is required.



There will be seats at tables for everybody.

You are free to sit anywhere you choose.

We invite you, for your enjoyment, to:

  • seat yourself on the left of the hall if you are planning to use the mirada (marked in red).
  • seat yourself on the right of the hall if you are planning to use the cabeceo (marked in blue).


 You are of course free to move about as much as you jolly well want, and there is a corridor behind the tables so you can do exactly that. The one exception is that people forming a maul at one end of the hall during the cortina will be invited to spread around a bit to help the mirada/cabeceo.


There are also plenty of spaces to socialise away from the dance floor.


Yes - the usual, and everyone who is invited will know and use them.


Booking IS OPEN:

Places are limited and we are also balancing the numbers of leaders and followers for your dancing pleasure.


As such we will be asking the following:

  • If you are booking as a Couple CLICK THIS LINK and use PayPal, credit cards or your bank account to book your places.
  • Any Ladies or Gentlemen who wish to book individually will be able to get in touch using the contact form below and we will then do our best to allocate a place for you as soon as possible.
