Southend Flamenco was created for those who love this typically Spanish form of dance. There are now regular local classes for beginners to learn how to dance, and opportunities for the more experienced to practice their technique and have some fun rehearsing what they know.

 Facebook Group was set up on 3 August 2010 when 2 flamenco guitarists, Brian Reynolds and Mike Smith, decided that it was about time for Southend-on-Sea to have its own dedicated flamenco organisation. This part of Essex needed a venue for flamencos to meet, and Roydon Academy is that place.

Flamenco is such a passionate activity. Who cannot be enthusiastic about the women in their colourful dresses, the stamping of shoes on the ground, or the rhythmical hand clapping and guitar playing that accompanies the traditional dancing and singing.

Anybody interested in flamenco, and who wants to learn to perform this exciting art, should contact Steve Brown or Miguel de la Torre by phone or e-mail Southend Flamenco was created for those who love this typically Spanish form of dance.

Craftable is a community not-for-profit group to promote sociable crafting for those who find it hard to leave their homes or feel isolated because of long-term physical or mental health conditions.

 The aim of Craftable is to recognise that crafting isn’t, as often depicted, a solitary activity carried out in isolation.  By setting up this group we hope to reach people struggling to leave their homes or talk to other adults, to give them a reason to come out once a week, to learn a new skill or practise an old one.

 Craftable is run by Jen Snow and Christine Davenport.  We each have our own physical and mental health issues, so understand how difficult it can be to join a new group, or even just leave the house.

 The best way to contact us is by email – the inbox is monitored regularly and you will normally receive a reply within 24 hours.
