Dancing: Ballroom

 

Washington Ballroom

The Washington Ballroom is approximately 18.3 metres (67’) x 18.3 metres (60’) over all with both an attached lounge bar and conservatory and contains an inset sprung maple floor, which is 14.5 metres (48’) x 11.0 metres (36’).

The Ballroom and Bar are fully air conditioned, the attached conservatory has windows enjoying magnificent sea views. The ballroom may be blacked out if required and contains controls for the fully variable lighting.

The stage Dimensions are approximately 7 metres (24’) x 2.8m (9’) and may be extended using portable stage units if required.

Lincoln Ballroom

In January 2011 the Lincoln Restaurant and Ballroom had the sprung strip maple dance floor extended to almost double its previous size, sanded, resealed and refurbished.

The Lincoln dance floor is now 13 metres (42’8”) long x 5.40 metres (17’9” wide or 70.20 square metres.

The Orchid room and the alcove (where the carvery is situated when needed) are unaffected by this excellent improvement. This now enables the Lincoln Complex to seat approximately 150 guests without encroaching on the dance floor. If the dance floor is included, the room is now capable of dining up to 250 guests, but of course does not lose the warm atmosphere it has always had for smaller numbers. No less comfort, much more flexibility!

We also have a portable floor which can be assembled to give a floor up to 3.50 metres (11’6”) x 3.50 metres (11’6”) or 12.25 square metres.
