Hilda's News

When Hilda's reopened this September after our summer break, we entered our 25th year [the actual birthday is February 2019]. A quarter of a century ladies!  

Think on that for a moment. Astonishing, eh? We can hardly believe it. That such a 'niche', women-only night could sustain for so long. The fact that we have is testament to the support, commitment and goodwill of hundreds of women over the years, coming together not just to partner dance but to create an untold number of friendship networks that flourish outside of Hilda's. What a spark!   

There was nothing like Hilda's when we arrived. Now, 25 years on, we don't want to out-stay our welcome.  For us, Hilda's is coming to its natural end and we have made the decision that 13th July, 2019 will be the last of the regular monthly Hilda's. 

As you know, we also run dance weekends in Eastbourne, and booking is already well underway for the next one which takes place in May 2019. Women come to these weekends from all over the country and even from outside of the UK. We hope to be able to continue offering weekends and have booked a provisional date for the following year of 12th -14th June, 2020.  We will see how this goes and then take it from there.   

For our remaining monthly dates at Jacksons Lane, we hope that you will take the opportunity to come and have a dance, be joyful and proud and celebrate with us the sheer remarkableness of 25 years of Hilda's! 

Thank you so much dear Hildettes.
