Secure parking for your car is available at the coach company’s base.
On arrival in St Quay Perros (Approximately 5pm) we check into our hotel – Citotel les Sternes, Perros Guirec (www.sternes.com) our base for the next 3 nights. There will be time to relax and prepare for the evening.
The dance teacher for the weekend is Les Lambert. The musicians are Ian Robertson playing an accordion and John Dudley on fiddle.
Dancing starts Friday evening at 7pm with a social dance with a walkthrough and light supper (Soup + Cake) at the Yves Guégan Community Hall in St Quay Perros and finishes at 11pm approximately.
