Directions to Charlton Park: Charlton Park is an historic house just 5 miles from Canterbury, set in its own beautiful grounds, with a fantastic ballroom which is regularly used for dance events. There is plenty of parking space. If this is your first visit, please allow extra time to find the venue, as not all satnavs will find the correct location.


On the southbound A2 south of Canterbury take the exit for Barham/Bishopsbourne, turn right at the junction towards Barham and Bishopsbourne into Coldharbour Lane. After 100m at the next junction turn left towards Barham into Bonny Bush Hill, continue south for 600 metres, then turn right into Rose Lane (to Bishopsbourne). (Caution this turning is easy to miss,it is a narrow lane if there's grass growing in the middle of the road, then you're on the right road!) At the bottom of the hill, turn sharp left into Charlton Park estate. After 50 metres you will see our "Jive t dance" banner. Follow the road for about 700 m then turn left into the car park. (The house is on the right.) The ballroom is on the first floor - turn left at the top of the stairs.

Class format: Doors open at 2:15pm. The first class will start at 2:30 pm, please arrive in time to book in and change shoes etc., After the class there will be tea/coffee/freestyle music for a quarter of an hour with the second class at 3:30. Freestyle dancing/practice from 4:15pm.
