Double Birthday Bash (Final Freestyle)
Dwain's 40th & ViBe's 7th
THIS DOES NOT EFFECT VIBE DANCE NIGHTS AT SWANLEY ON MONDAY EVENINGS. CLASS NIGHTS WILL CONTINUE AS NORMAL.
It is with great sadness that I have to announce that the freestyle booked for Friday, 28th August (vibe's birthday and my 40th) is potentially the last WEEKEND freestyle to be held at the Alexandra Suite. It is highly unlikely that the situation will change.
Following a Swanley council meeting, the banqueting board has agreed that the hire of all halls run by Swanley banqueting is to increase. This means the charge is now double the price of my previous hire cost and catering is also a condition of the hall hire. If catering is not required, the hire cost increases yet again. This means the total cost to hire the venue without catering has increased by nearly 150% from the original hire cost with immediate effect.
I have spent a long time trying to negotiate to retain our freestyles at the Alexandra suite as we are a community organisation, however the council are not budging on their position as they say all the halls have been running at a loss. This means hiring the Alexandra suite has now become unviable as a freestyle venue, as the entry fee I would have to double to cover the overheads and I am not prepared to pass that cost onto my members.
The increase also includes the hire for Friday, 28th August which means this event will potentially run at a loss. As ticket have already be sold and with limited time to make alternative arrangement, I have decided to go ahead with this event. I hope you understand that because of the council decision. I have no budget to spend on niceties such as a drinks reception etc.
I am actively looking for a replacement venue for ViBe Freestyles so if any member has a hall suggestion please let me know.
THIS DOES NOT EFFECT THE MONDAY NIGHT HIRE AND VIBE CLASS NIGHTS ON MONDAY WILL CONTINUE AS NORMAL.
Residents of Swanley, who would like to complain about this council decision can write to Swanley council.
Thank you all for your continued support of the 7 years. sad as this may be I am undeterred to make this the councils decision put a dampener on this event and I am determined go out with a bang!
Finally there will be no tickets sold on the door. Advanced tickets only £12. Don't delay book today. Dwain Leaver

ViBe Swanley Price increase
It is with regret that I have to announce that from Monday 7th September entry to ViBe Swanley will increase to £9.
This is due to the ongoing restructuring by the Council's new management of Swanley Banqueting. This decision has been forced upon us as the rate ViBe has to pay has nearly doubled. ViBe is not passing the full increase onto it customers. Monday Freestyles will increase to £7.
This will only affect ViBe Swanley. This charge brings us inline with similar dance clubs, however we still represent great value as the loyalty scheme will still continue. All existing loyalty cards will still be honoured. Thank you for your continued support.
