For details of this OneDance Latin Festival weekender for lovers of salsa, bachata & kizomba held at the O2 Academy in Bournemouth from Friday 29th September to Sunday 1st October see the facebook event OneDance Latin Festival Event Page. My interest was only in the party on Friday night. I used the enormous car park opposite Sainsbury’s in Hawkwood Road which is free from 6pm to 8am – see the map at the bottom of the page for details. I parked at the wrong end when I first arrived at 10pm and had a long walk to the venue but I moved the car later when I changed my shirt to reduce the walk from 400m to 150m.
The party night was scheduled to start at 10:30pm and finish at 4am but in practice it was an hour late due to technical problems. The night started with half hour show and was followed by the BachataStars UK 2017 Final lasting about an hour. I had a wonderful time social dancing from 1am to 4am – so many excellent salseras to dance with including many performers who were a delight to dance with.
