Cider House Blues Bristol
Cider House Blues 11/13/2015 City: Bristol, United Kingdom Dances: Blues Once again Bristol's Blues Dancing Festival welcomes you in the midst of dark winter months to come hang out, dance, party, drink cider, and have a wonderful time.

If you haven't been to Cider House, our intention to to create a small, friendly blues dancing event that inspires people to dance. We try to make sure that everyone feels welcome to dance both roles if they would like, and last year way more than half of people did.

Our teacher this year is the quite excellent Justin Riley, and it will be your last chance to see him in Europe in 2015 (unless he hasn't told us something!)

We've swapped dates with Blues Baby Blues this year, so we are slightly earlier than expected - 13th to 15th November.
