Our first event of 2024 is coming up as we bring our pop up store to Bournemouth for the UK Open Championships!
It's a quick start to 2024 as we kick off our competition calendar on the wonderful south coast for the first international event of the year.
The UK Open Championships take place in the B.I.C. (Bournemouth International Centre) and will run from the 16th - 21st January. Our pop up store will be based across the road from the B.I.C., as usual, in the Royal Exeter Hotel, where we'll open on Monday 15th.
The event is a bit longer than years prior to 2023 as it has been extended to include events for youngsters, seniors as well as other events and we'll be well stocked with a variety of our most popular and latest shoes for Latin, Ballroom and Practice/Teaching for dancers of all ages.
We'll have John, Justin and Kathryn working down there and whilst we have plenty of shoes available for dancers to try and buy, we're also available to chat to any dance store and studio/school owners about working together.
On Monday 15th we'll be open from 12pm and after that, we'll be open from 10am each morning, and we'll likely close around 6pm each evening.
We are scheduled to close on Saturday 20th - likely closing up mid afternoon.
From now until 4th January, there will be a shipping option on our website for collection orders at the UK Open in Bournemouth - so if you want to simply pre-order and pick up shoes then you have until the 4th January to do that. In order to see this option, you must use a UK address for shipping (for overseas visitors, use the address of your hotel as a shipping option and then you will see the UK Open collection option). We will email to confirm collection with you before processing your order - please reply to that as quick as possible).
We hope to see you in Bournemouth and we wish all competitors good luck!
