Updated 28th August 2018:
From Thursday the 6th September, we will be at St Gerard Majella Church hall on the Knowle/Brislington/Hengrove border, until further notice. Unfortunately, due to a long-term booking, we will no longer have access to the Hungerford Community Centre on a Thursday evening after our last class there on the 30th of August.
The hall's main entrance is located in Buller Road, just off of Talbot Hill and is a 1 mile, 5 minute drive from the South Bristol Sports Centre. It is also located approximately just a 6 minute walk from the Broadwalk bus stops on the A37.
All classes, start times, and prices will remain the same.
Updated 26th August 2018:
You may have heard that our long-time weekly venue; South Bristol Sports Centre, had a major fire and suffered severe damage to the gym and sauna areas of the building. While the function rooms, which is where we hold our weekly classes, and bar area wasn't touched by the fire itself, it was affected by smoke, etc. Conservative estimates have said it will be a minimum of 6 months (at the time of writing this, which will be around Christmas 2018), maybe even 12 before it's open again.
Currently, only the 5-a-side football and outdoor events are being catered for - these are being operated by minimal staff from a portacabin in the car park, which is why it can appear that the Sports Centre is open when you pass the venue.
For the time being, we will be holding our Thursday evening classes at the Hungerford Road Community Centre which is situated just 1 kilometre from the Sports Centre.
**Please note that we are only at the Hungerford Community Centre until the end of August (the last date being the 30th). From the 6th of September, we'll be at a new, and hopefully more permanent, venue until we can move back to the SBSC. We have a potential venue but just have to finalise a couple of details, then will make an announcement. Please keep an eye on the website and Facebook for more news when we have it! We'll do our best to try and keep it within a few miles from the South Bristol Sports Centre.
According to Google the distance between the two venues is just a 6-minute walk, and the number 36 bus stops right outside of the Community Centre on either side of the road.
The Hungerford Community Centre & Social Club
Times and costs of our weekly classes will remain the same.
We do hope you continue to support us during this testing period and we will keep you updated when we can return to our Salsa home!
Oh! And if you could share this information with anybody you think should know, please do.
