Saturday 8th Oct. 10am – 5pm

Sunday 9th Oct. 10am – 5pm

 

The workshop will consist of:

Wee Kee Jin is the principal instructor at the Taijiquan School of Central Equilibrium based in Auckland New Zealand he is internationally recognized as a senior instructor of the Huang Sheng-Shyan system and is in ongoing demand by schools and associations in Europe, New Zealand and Brisbane Australia. Jin has dedicated himself to Taiji for well over twenty years, with most of that professionally teaching in Singapore, where he was born, and in New Zealand where he immigrated in 1991. Twice a year Jin gives workshops in England, Holland, Germany, Austria, Norway and Denmark, plus every few months he crosses the Tasman to Brisbane, Australia. Over the southern hemisphere summer months Jin hosts visiting students from Europe, America and Australia, providing them with residential training including personalized tuition, and access to his schools’ classes. The distance hasn’t deterred many from returning regularly. This is probably not just a reflection of Jin’s depth in understanding Taijiquan, but also his open and accessible teaching style.

Accommodation

Compiled by Peter Fletcher - July 2022

 

Bed and breakfasts that would not require a car

 

Etruria House Hotel, 91 Crookes Road Sheffield S10 5BD (Tel 0114-2662241).

They have a web site just search on hotel name. Prices are £38 for single sharing a bathroom. £48 single en-suite. Twin or double with shared bathroom £52. Double/twin ensuite also available. Allow 40 minutes to walk to venue.

 

The Travelodge in the centre of Sheffield may also be a possibility. Get a bus from there to the venue. Link to http://www.travelsouthyorkshire.com or phone Travel Line 01709 515151.

 

B&B’s / hotels that will require a car / transport

Note: buses and walking may be possible but you would need to enquire about this.

ETAP hotel – similar to Travelodge – is located near the Don Valley Stadium. I read a review that said the rooms sleep 3, the 3rd bed being a bunk above a double bed. Do check first. Apparently the rooms have no tea and coffee making facilities. I suppose if they have a power point you could bring your own. The price for a room (sleeps 3 apparently) £32 per night – no breakfast.

 

There are Travelodge’s around the city. Look on the Travelodge website for further information. Possible to get cheap deals through Expedia.com. Be aware that the Travelodge in the centre of Sheffield is more expensive and has no parking for cars.

 

Load Brook Cottages B&B in the Stannington area of Sheffield approx 5 miles from the workshop venue. She sounds a “nice “ woman Alison. Rates: £35 single, £55 double. They have a website which I’m sure you will find. Phone number 0114-2331619.

 

Padley Farm B&B Dungworth Green Sheffield. In same area as the above so approx. 5 miles from venue. Proprietor sounds nice. More traditional B/B rates at £30 per person per night if the stay is longer than one night – no single supplement. Tel. 0114-2851427.

 

Quarry House B&B Rivelin Glen Quarry Rivelin Valley Road – they have a web site so check it out I haven’t been able to contact them by phone today prior to writing this so unable to check the rates for singles – they quote £40 per person per night on the web site – again this is only 6 or so miles from the venue in the valley which enters Sheffield with the A57 from Glossop/Manchester running alongside it. Tel. 0114-2340382.
