Event Outline

Riot Jive Weekend, Lakeside Warner Resort, Hayling Island. 21 - 24 April 2017
This Event is 85% full and WE ARE CURRENTLY TAKING BOOKINGS.

Having run jive weekends at Pontin's Camber Sands for more than 10 years and Butlin's Bognor Regis for many years, we are currently staging one UK jive weekend a year at Warner Lakeside. The event's backbone is the same as the one that we created so many years ago, when we staged the world's first jive weekends at Bognor, Camber and other major UK resorts. You can expect two venues with a variety of dance workshops held daily (all included, no need to book in advance). At night, modern jive freestyle can be danced in one venue and blues/swing/wcs or modern jive in the other venue.
We do not use portable dance floors, as the main modern jive venue has a huge wooden sprung dance floor. The floor is so big that in order to enhance people's comfort we add tables and chairs at the end and to the sides of the dance floor.
Our DJs and Teachers are experts in this sector, having worked for many years on jive weekends.

We believe that by staging our event at Warner Lakeside we provide a fantastic opportunity for you to experience a superior venue (featuring the largest dance floor used on the jive scene), accommodation (including hot water, heating and maid service (on Saturday and Sunday), free parking (1 car pass per chalet) and a superb half board restaurant, featuring an all inclusive a la carte menu, with waiter service at the table and/or self service, as you prefer.

Due to redevelopment of the centre, our next Premier Riot Jive Weekend might be our last one at Warner Lakeside. So join us for the very last time at this fabulous event, which includes:

• Friday, Saturday and Sunday a la carte menu and buffet dinner and entertainment – Featuring a brand new show/cabaret every night.
• Saturday, Sunday and Monday a la carte menu and buffet breakfast.
• Workshops during the day across two venues for all levels of Modern Jive to a disparate range of other popular dance styles throughout Saturday and Sunday.
