The Place to Be – hafla for first time soloists

The Place to Be – hafla for first time soloists


This project came about when one of Kay Taylors ladies said she would love to do a solo but was too scared.  It is difficult at big haflas when most people have performed before.  Kay asked if she would dance at a hafla which was for solo ‘virgins’.  They both got quite excited by the idea and so the project was born.

Our hafla will be at the The Place Cafe and Bar, 38 Silksworth Row, Sunderland, SR1 3QJ on Saturday 27th October – it has a nice relaxed venue and does very nice food.  You can see their website here.  The evening will be a social get together with buffet, the chance to chat, some boogie time and performances from our brave soloists through the evening.  There will be a maximum of 8 participants.

Our hafla:
A friendly, supportive and intimate space.
The evening starts from 7pm.
The chance to have a chat and catch up with friends.
Performances from our fabulous soloists, each of whom have chosen their piece of music and have been working with a mentor.  We will start the performances at about 7.30pm
Delicious Buffet about 8.30pm
Time to socialise and have a boogie for the rest of the evening.
