Join the TYKES Tango

RESERVE a Place at The Tykes Tango -  A weekend in Glorious Yorkshire

Looks like this:

First come first served. No cash needed yet, (this is Yorkshire, after all) but just let me know if you are interested.

That way I can make more plans and get back to you with the results. Now what's it all about?

On behalf of the Eastern Region, I would like to invite you to join us at the Yorkshire alternative to the Highland “Fling”

We call it the Tykes Tango.

Starting 23rd March 2018 Friday through Sunday.

Based near Tollerton, just off the A19 and about 11 miles north of York on the fringe of the North Yorkshire National Park, here is what we propose to do - apart from having fun of course.

Friday evening

  • Arrival at the hotel for coffee and cakes.
  • Buffet Dinner at the Hotel


  • Breakfast at the hotel
  • Play it your own way or
  • At 9:30 a.m. take a planned drive of about 80 miles through some of the best countryside in the UK that we know so well. Visit a Lavender farm or the Heriot museum perhaps – or Helmsley, home of some of the best village shopping, near to the famous White Horse.
  • Lunch – at Whitby – home of Yorkshire Fish and Chips. Or where you like.
  • Followed by another shorter run of about 55 miles to the hotel with a stop for coffee on the way.
  • Evening – We all meet up for a Club Dinner at the hotel. Time for Tango perhaps? Drinks in the bar or lounge afterwards,


  • Breakfast at the Hotel after a lazy night (or not!)
  • 10:00 a.m. - Drive out for some more countryside and meet for lunch in an Abbey or a Railway Carriage with a coffee stop on the way.
  • After lunch, do your own thing or take another route before you return home.

No need to follow our proposals, but the Dinner is the bit we would like you to attend for sure.

  • About £85 per room per night for one person in a single room.
  • Or £120 per room per night based on two people sharing a double
