There is a lot of dance shows in L0ndon over the next few months and most of them owe their popularity to Strictly Come Dancing. So it is quite right that the Live Tour will be back in London in 2013 and that we are proud to offer Strictly Come Dancing Theatre Breaks for the very first time.
The performances will be at London’s O2 Arena in Greenwich on 02 and 03 February 2013
The live show version of the incredibly popular TV series on BBC1 will feature a star-studded line-up incluing celebrated Olympic athletes Victoria Pendleton and Louis Smith, as well as Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh. This year’s professionals who will be performing alongside the stars include Brendan Cole and Kristina Rihanoff. But for me the stars of the show are the cozzies!
Our favourite judges will also be present: Craig Revell Horwood, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli to give their expert opinion and the all important scores. So everything is in place to give you a weekend that you will surely score 10 out of 10! All you need to do is choose which hotel you would like to stay in.
Afternoon Performances: Saturday 02 February 2013 – 14.30pm, Sunday 03 February 2013 – 13.30pm
Evening Performances: Saturday 02 February 2013 – 19.30pm, Sunday 03 February – 18.30pm
Please note that your hotel stay below must include the night of the event date selected in the calendar. If you want to stay on the Saturday night but see the show on the Sunday, please contact the booking office and we will try to arrange that for you.
Of course there is a wide range of hotels you can include in your Strictly Come Dancing break but the O2 Arena is quite some way towards the east of London and on the south side of the river Thames so may I suggest a hotel in that direction – unless you want to stay in the West End and in one of the more usual theatre breaks hotels.
So out towards the east of london are the following.
On the south side of the river (the same side as The O2) you have the choice of the De Vere Venues Devonport House and the Novotel London Greenwich. Both good four star hotels.
Just across the Thames are the Radisson Blu Edwardian, New Providence Wharf, the Travelodge London Docklands, the London Marriott Hotel West India Quay and the International Hotel. A little further out, near Excel you have the Novotel London Excel, the Aloft London Excel and the Custom House Hotel.
The benefit with all of these is that they can be quite a bit cheaper than the West End hotels so do look out for some cracking deals and hotels with some great facilities: you can select what facilities are important to you when you go through the booking process.
