Bring water. Though The Serpentine Bar and Kitchen is close by.
Toilets are at the Serpentine Bar. There are closer toilets charging 20p. Bring 20p coins.
There are no chairs. Bring a folding chair or stool if you need to sit. A few can sit on the steps. Or lean against the railings. Or bring a rug and picnic on the grass verge around the bandstand.
Bring old shoes. But the floor is very smooth.
There will be photos and filming by the organisers and other tangueros and inevitably by members of the public. These will be published on social media such as Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. If you object please wear a mask, hijab or do not come.
I have permission to use the bandstand by The Royal Parks Office but there is no fee agreed so it is not hired.
We will, therefore, have to get there early to occupy the space. Help welcome at 15:30 or earlier to occupy the space.
