other information


We aim for a flowing dance floor as well as a balance of people dancing the Tanguera and Tanguero roles. As such, numbers are limited and booking in advance is required.


There will be seats at tables for everybody.
You are free to sit anywhere you choose.

  • We invite you, for your enjoyment, to:
    • seat yourself on the left of the hall if you are planning to use the mirada (marked in red).
    • seat yourself on the right of the hall if you are planning to use the cabeceo (marked in blue).

You are of course free to move about as much as you jolly well want, and there is a corridor behind the tables so you can do exactly that. The one exception is that people forming a maul at one end of the hall during the cortina will be invited to spread around a bit to help the mirada/cabeceo.

There are also plenty of spaces to socialise away from the dance floor.


Yes – the usual, and everyone who is attending will know and use them.


The music presented is that which a milonguera or milonguero would be happy to dance to.
Paul and Mabel play “Golden Age” music.
The music is organized in Tandas with Cortinas in the TTVTTM format.
We reckon the character and personality of the DJ’s have a significant effect on the character and personality of the milonga, and we are very pleased to have Paul and Mabel for the day.


No worries as parking is free on the weekend after 13.30.
You can park in resident’s bays and on single yellow lines but do check the signs.

Public Transport

The nearest stations are Kilburn High Road station (Overground, 4 minutes walk)
and West Hampstead station (Jubilee & Overground, 11 minutes walk downhill on the way there, which means it’s uphill on the way home).

The 139 bus goes up Abbey Road, past the Beatle’s pedestrian crossing, and many many buses plough Maida Vale (the road) up to Kilburn High Road station.





At Husky Mary’s places are limited and we are also balancing the numbers of leaders and followers for your dancing pleasure.

As such we ask the following:

  • If you are booking as a Couple you can now CLICK THIS LINK and you’ll be able to use PayPal (and credit cards and bank accounts) to book your places & pizzas.
  • Any Ladies or Gentlemen who wish to book individually can get in touch using the contact form below and we will do our best to allocate a place for you as soon as possible.

This event is now past… so… move along nicely! Thank you 🙂
