Valentine Tango Ball
From 7:30 - 11:30
Supper provided and bar facilities available.
This annual Tangonut event has gone through a transformation in 2017.
The Old Museum at Bowen Hills. We have finally found a venue that surpasses the ambience of our previous elegant venues (Brisbane Irish Club and Brisbane Town Hall). There is also a generous kitchen for preparation of supper. And bar facilities.
Live Music with the Mendoza Quartet. In addition to our much admired DJs Christine and Lydia, the Mendoza Quartet will enchant us with their energetic, joyful, and totally danceable, tango music! This group of enthusiastic Brisbane musicians is manna from heaven for tango dancers (seriously!)
Online Booking. We have shifted to an online booking system. Hopefully this will simplify the booking experience and encourage you to book in a timely fashion. I have been able to maintain the option of purchasing single tickets ($45) or booking tables for 10 at a significant discount ($40 pp). Note that “al fresco” seating is also available on the balcony (see floor plan). Make your booking at www.oldmuseum.org.
Supporting our heritage. The old museum is one of the few iconic buildings that escaped the bulldozer, or worse…being reduced to a facade hiding some internal architectural monstrosity! It is also the home of four youth orchestras that provide future national and international musicians. Income from these events supports these orchestras. It’s the sort of place we should be supporting.
