Strictly Come Dancing Comes to Warner Leisure Hotels


Foxtrot, samba, waltz, jive….yes, it’s Strictly season and the nation is once again gripped by dance fever. But rather than just watch the dramas unfold from the sidelines, for those who are inspired to leave their sofas and experience the magic of the dance floor firsthand, Warner Leisure Hotels is launching the perfect experience for you.

Warner Leisure Hotels are delighted to announce their new exclusive collaboration with BBC Worldwide to launch BBC TV’s Strictly Come Dancing themed holiday breaks in 2010.  Running from February to July, across five locations, you can get up close and personal with some of your favourite Strictly stars as they bring the show to life - including Darren & Lilia, James & Ola, Brian & Kristina, Anton & Erin, Vincent & Flavia, Ian & Camilla and Karen Hardy. Joining the professional dancers will be Strictly Come Dancing judges Craig Revel Horwood and Len Goodman (Please call freephone 0800 1 388 399 or visit our website for confirmation of celebrity appearances and dates).
