FLIPSIDE FESTIVAL 2015
Over the first weekend of October Snape Maltings pulsated with the sounds, ideas and flavours of Latin America as Flipside brought together writers, musicians, artists and dancers in a weekend of joyful and stimulating events for all the family.

On Saturday evening The London Tango Orchestra - a real 'orquesta tipica' provided a night of passion and drama with special guests including tango music royalty Juan José Mosalini, virtuoso Argentinian tango singer and dancer Leonardo Suarez Paz with his wife dancer, Olga Suarez Paz.
With literature, art, music, children's events, food and drink, dance and capoeira all being celebrated, FlipSide was a weekend of total immersion for all the whole family.
