Tango on the Thames in 2011 – photo, Aaron Davies

Tango on the Thames was the idea of the late and much-missed Tony Walker. It occurred to him when an unusual venue on board a Thames-side ship became available.  For many years, Tony, Peng Newman and the rest of the team worked hard to make Tango on the Thames one of the best-loved Milongas on the London Tango circuit.

Although, sadly, Tony is no longer with us, under Peng’s guidance, Tango on the Thames continues to flourish in its glorious, new, riverside venue, the Shepherd Hall in St Thomas’s Hospital.

With a good floor, good music, excellent teachers, generous hospitality and a welcoming atmosphere, Tango on the Thames remains as popular as ever with those who love to dance tango.
