The Hanworth Classic Has Come To An End

After collecting £90,000 for charity, we sadly have to say goodbye. Thank you to everyone who has helped make this annual event the success it was as well as all of the people that attended over the years.

Due to a major change of policy by Royal Parks, we have to report, sadly, that we can no longer hold our event in Bushy Park

We have looked into many other venues, but all come with either an unviable hire cost, lack of infrastructure, poor access or heavy restrictions. As we cannot match the ambience of Bushy Park anywhere else, we have, very reluctantly, decided to go out on a high - having raised over £25,000 this year alone and almost £90,000 in total.

Therefore regrettably 2019 was the final Hanworth Classic/Jive Dancing event.

We would like to express our deep felt thanks to everybody who has supported us and Shooting Star Children's Hospices, over the last 11 fantastic years at Bushy Park.

With our heartfelt best wishes to you all.

Nic (Moore) and Mike (Pratt)
