Following the success of the first Dorset Tango Festival, we are delighted to announce the second Dorset Tango Festival.


We look forward to welcoming you to this beautiful part of the world in Dorchester - Thomas Hardy country! Dorchester is a great place to spend the weekend, it's a historic market town with lots of shopping and restaurants available. Plus you have the added  bonus of the beautiful countryside of Dorset with popular seaside resorts of Weymouth and Lulworth Cove just 10 miles away.


The Corn Exchange is a fantastic Victorian building in the middle of Dorchester Town Centre. It has 2 superb dancefloors. Upstairs is the Town Hall and downstairs is the Grand Hall with a capacity of 350. We are fortunate to be able to use both rooms over the weekend events which start on Friday evening and finish on Sunday afternoon.
