Pirates in Torquay!
Country Knights hosted their second annual weekend away at the Victoria Hotel in Torquay recently and what a fantastic time was had by all!The weekend started with evening meal and then a night of requests in the impressively spacious Richmond ballroom. After breakfast and a (optional) line dance workshop on Saturday morning, dancers were free to enjoy the luxurious facilities in the Hotel including spa and Aztec swimming pool or just enjoy a leisurely stroll to the harbour or beach front.
After dinner, Steve Lovett entertained the group with three sets of live music on Saturday night. His years of experience and professionalism shined through as interacted naturally with the audience. He played tracks that dancers and non-dancers alike enjoyed and his superb guitar skills were demonstrated with every song. The theme for Saturday night was ‘Pirates’ and everyone put so much effort into their costumes.
After a Sunday morning buffet breakfast and morning workshop, the group were again free to enjoy the local area in the beautiful English Riviera sunshine. The weekend finished by dancing to all the groups favourite requests to the early hours of the morning.
Marie, Country Knights’ dance instructor said “Thanks to everyone that joined us on our weekend away! It was so much fun and that can only be attributed to the wonderful people in our group. I’m so lucky to be able to call every one of them ‘friend’”.
The next Country Knights weekend will be hosted in Margate in 2014. Details of all our events can be found on the web site: www.countryknights.co.uk.
