Event Description

Come join this spectacular Live Flamenco Night in Battersea, curated in collaboration with internationally renowned London-based artist Maria Vega.

This March, we offer you the opportunity to immerse yourself fully into the flamenco passion! Like any juerga, our evening will bring artist and audience together, paying tribute to the spontaneity and intimacy of an authentic flamenco gathering. 

So come and stomp your feet and clap your hands alongside London’s hottest flamenco stars as they teach us the traditional bulerías dance and rhythms in our unique workshop before the show. 

And who knows, by the end of the evening, maybe you too will join the artists on stage?

Taking place at the atmospheric Battersea Barge overlooking the River Thames, we promise a night for absolutely everyone, from dancers to music lovers, young, old, beginner or pro! Battersea Barge is only a 10-minute walk from Vauxhall tube station, in Nine Elms.

  • Doors open 7 pm  – Grab a drink and find a seat on this unique river boat. A true hidden gem and well-worth the journey.
  • 7.45-8.45 pm – Flamenco bulerías workshop with the artists. This is a great opportunity for all those who have always wanted to dance Flamenco but never found the time. Expect a fun and informal workshop, addressing both dancers and non-dancers and exploring the different rhythms that will later be brought up in the performance
