International Belly Dance Congress

Lakeside Leisure Complex

The last Congress was a great success but the venue really wasn't right for us! So we’ve scoured the south of England to find somewhere that will really do justice to the Congress concept — of bringing the world of bellydance together for a fantastic weekend of dancing, learning, watching, shopping, relaxing and meeting like-minded souls.

And we reckon we’ve found it at Lakeside — the perfect setting for our second Congress! Set around a beautiful lake in the heart of Surrey, close to London and the M25, it boasts a fabulous cabaret theatre with table seating for 1000 people, a great nightclub for more intimate shows and enough restaurants, bars and coffee lounges to keep any bellydancer happily fed and watered!

Of course there are lots of rooms of different sizes for our fabulous workshops and talks. And when you can’t dance any more, you can relax over a coffee with your dance friends or even take a dip in the health club pool or jacuzzi if you are staying in one of the onsite hotels!

Best of all, we have the whole place to ourselves! Apart from the nightclub on Saturday night (which will be open to Lakeside members only) we will be the only people in the venue. It will be bellydance heaven for a whole weekend!

How to get there
Set in the heart of Surrey, just off the M3 near Camberley and Farnborough, Lakeside is just 40 minutes from Heathrow and 55 minutes from Gatwick airports. Close enough to London to commute by car or train, there are regular trains from London Waterloo to Frimley rail station.

There are two hotels onsite but as of now they are already full with early bird dancers. But there is a sister hotel within driving distance (see hotel page for special rates) and lots of local hotels and guesthouses in the area. Check out the hotel page for more information and the forum for people looking to share rooms.

There is ample parking onsite for those of you who are driving and if there is enough demand, we may have a minibus doing a circuit of the local hotels for those without cars. And of course you can taxi-share with others in your hotel.
