We're excited to welcome young people and families to Victoria Park this summer for a class, course or workshop, as part of the Out of Doors Festival. You can find some important information below about what to expect from your visit. 

When you arrive at the park for your class, please look out for the Corn Exchange trike and banner. An area for the class will be designated with bunting. We ask that during the class, participants remain within this designated area. We cannot be held responsible for anything that happens outside of our designated class area.

You do not need to show a physical ticket when you arrive at your class but the practitioner leading the class will be doing a register so you will need to know the surname you booked under.

Since these are outdoor classes we ask that you dress for all weathers and provide your own sun-hats, sun cream, coats, jackets, scarves and umbrellas (it is an English summer after all!).

If it is raining heavily on the day of your class, we will follow our Wet Weather plan. We may cancel class and will contact you to let you know either the evening before for a morning class, or during that morning if you have an afternoon class. Please make sure your contact details are up to date when you book. In the event that we have to cancel your class due to adverse weather, we will offer you a full refund. 

Unfortunately, we are not able to provide toilets for this event.

There are public toilets in Parkway shopping centre that you can use before your event starts, but please be aware that we are unable to let children and young people leave our sessions unattended. 

If you are bringing your child to a drop-off class and you think your child may need the bathroom during their class, please stay close by so you can take them yourself.

First Aid
Should you or your child require first aid during your class, please visit the Corn Exchange trike or speak to your practitioner. A Corn Exchange First Aider will be on hand either in the park or on call in the main Corn Exchange building.

Other things to bring:
Please bring a water bottle. 

Our classes will be taking place on grass so please bring a picnic blanket/something waterproof to sit on.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide chairs. If you or a member of your household attending the class has mobility issues, we suggest you bring your own camping chair to sit on.

We hope you enjoy our Out of Doors Festival!

Please remember to bring your face covering with you as visitors over the age of 11 are required to wear them on arrival. We will be limiting the number of people admitted to each event to ensure appropriate social distancing between each group and once you have been seated face coverings may be removed.

    Lîla Dance: The Hotel Experience Arlington Arts

    West Berkshire Villagers | Events | What’s On | Things to Do. A man checks into a hotel the night before his wedding, unaware that things may not be as they seem. As the clock ticks, the walls around him seem to blur and dissolve as fragments of memories tumble into the room in the form of past lovers. They fall from the ceilings, crawl out from under the bed and step out of wardrobes to face him once more with full force and in vivid colours. The Hotel Experience becomes a night of doubt, hope, crisis, and unexpected encounters. When the sun rises, he has an important decision to make.

    Join Lîla Dance on stage for the show as part of the extended cast by joining the workshop. This day is aimed at dancers aged 14 years and above. Call the Arlington Arts box office to book your space in the workshop.

    Check in to your local venue, come and watch your friends and family guest star alongside our four mesmerising dancers in this extraordinary night of dance. Come and find out why Lîla Dance are rapidly becoming one of Britain’s fastest-growing dance companies, with a reputation for redefining community involvement in professional productions.
