We are delighted to announce a visit from Theresa Faus at The Magic Roundabout Autumn Embraces at Kington Langley Village Hall on 28th October 2018.

Theresa is an authority on tango music who started DJing in 2004 and has run a monthly milonga in Munich since 2005.

More recently, she began to travel with her music (and also to give seminars about tango music). She has DJ’ed in milongas and special events in many parts of Germany, in the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, Spain, and Buenos Aires.

Talk – 2pm to 3.30pm

‘Women in Tango’ by Theresa Faus

Between 2pm and 3.3opm Theresa will present a talk about tangos with women as authors, musicians, and singers. And tangos where the lyrics express recurrent, stereotypical images of women, among them:

  • the unfaithful woman = the ingrate, who ruins her spouse
  • the prostitute = the seducer who is at the same time victim of seduction and exploitation
  • the mother = the only woman to rely on.

We will listen to beautiful pieces with these topics from various decades, and discuss, apart from the lyrics, the stylistic characteristics of the music, that make these pieces unique three-minutes artworks.

There are only 30 places available at £10 each and they can be booked in advance by emailing tango@magicroundabout.eu.

Price on the day if there is availability will be £12.

Milonga – 3.30pm to 9.30pm

DJs Bärbel Rücker and Theresa Faus

Come and dance to the traditional tango music of two fabulous international DJs on the wonderful floor at Kington Langley Village Hall. The milonga will run from 3.30pm to 9.30pm. If you haven’t been before you can expect the best quality full range sound system, cabeceo friendly lighting, free parking, free soup and jacket potatoes, free coffee, tea and snacks.

  • 3.30pm to 6.30pm – DJ Bärbel Rücker
  • 6.30pm to 9.30om – DJ Theresa Faus

The Magic Roundabout Tango Marketplace will be there too, giving you a chance to sell your preloved tango clothes and shoes.

Since Bärbel started Litter Picking in The Forest of Dean (see her blog post Litter Picking Is Cool) we have been thinking about opportunities to reuse and recycle. One obvious opportunity was to start The Magic Roundabout Tango Marketplace for Tango Shoes, Clothes, Books and more. 

It’s time to de-clutter your tango wardrobe. Bring pre-loved, good quality tango shoes and tango clothes to sell or exchange to The Magic Roundabout Milongas in Lydney and Kington Langley.

Your next chances to sell or exchange your unwanted items at the Magic Roundabout Tango Marketplace are:

3. Share the album.*
4. Come to the milonga, enjoy the music, dance and de-clutter your wardrobe at the same time.

Marek, Baerbel and Paul at The Magic Roundabout Sunday Service 2018.

Last Sunday we were delighted to welcome Marek Szotkowski to the Magic Roundabout for the first time. His first visit was to DJ at the August 2018 edition of the Sunday Service in Lydney. He played a brilliant set for us which certainly kept everyone dancing all afternoon.

Marek and his wife Olivera recently moved to Cardiff from Guildford where they ran the Tango Conexion milonga. Marek will be starting tango classes in Cardiff in September and I recommend you experience his excellent teaching.

Below is a link to the first of his series of classes which take place at The Gate, Keppoch St, Cardiff. CF24 3JW.

Magic Roundabout character cakes by Pauline Mulford.

The next Magic Roundabout at Kington Langley is the Spring Bank Holiday milonga on Monday 28th May.

We’re interested to see if Pauline can come up with another fantastic cake to match her previous fabulous creations!

The last event at Kington Langley with Michael Lavocah was a great success (see the video here) and we felt the new format of one six hour milonga worked well, so we will keep this format for future milongas at Kington Langley.

DJs will be Bärbel Rücker and Paul Strudwick, providing you with the best danceable traditional tango music.

If you’re hungry there will be free soup and jacket potatoes throughout the event, and of course free tea, coffee, biscuits etc.

There is free car parking on site and we hope this time that the field will also be dry enough to park on.

Please keep the access to the field clear so we can accommodate everybody’s cars.

The Bank Holiday milonga will run from 3.30pm to 9.30pm. Entrance is £15.
