Brighton & Hove is popular year round with tourists and events. Demand for accommodation always outstrips supply and unfortunately prices are always high. The good news is the venue is very well connected with Hove station 1 minute from the venue and plenty of buses to connect across town (inc late night). Taxi Rank is also 1 min away.


Once we knew the Festival would be in Brighton we immediately pre-booked a number of rooms with the most affordable local hotel (5-10 min drive). We have continued to add to this and now maxxed out our allowed allocation.These are still very limited in number and will sell out quickly. The rooms are mostly doubles with a handful of twins but no singles.The rooms are only available as part of the Festival Hotel Package (including Full Milonga Pass & number of Workshops). The package is on a per person basis but minimum room occupancy will need to be 2 people (so 2 friends or a couple). We have allocated just a few double rooms to single bookers but you will need to pay the full room supplement.
Please note - We don't make profit from Hotel! We secured the rooms early to get best rates, which we pass on to you. We realise still the packages are not the solution for everyone and are happy for people to book their own accommodation elsewhere + build their own package :))


We have also spent a very frustrating past 3-4 months tirelessly negotiating for group rate discounts with many other locals hotels to get more rooms secured at better prices for you. Some of these have still not reopened yet due to Pandemic and are still operating as Refugee/Assylum Housing. Unfortunately most of the reopened local hotels are in a 'fill your boots' , summer season post covid mode and despite our best and prolonged efforts have finally refused to offer better bulk discounted rates.

HOTELS:It is still possible to find single, double or twin rooms very locally in Hove, but it isn't cheap! So to save money you may prefer to book one in Brighton (Kemptown has more affordable b&bs) or a bit further out of Brighton. Nearby towns such as Worthing, Steyning, Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath currently have lots of good quality reasonably priced accom.

AIR BNB: Lots of choice for all budgets. A number of our regular out of town visitors have booked airbnbs for the festival and it is probably the best option for many of you.

YOUTH HOSTELS/CAMPING:Plenty around Brighton and slightly outside

LOCAL DANCERS HOSTING:We are also expecting a number of locals will offer hosting to visiting dancers. Details will be posted in a separate thread in the Facebook event
