Tai Chi in the Park 2014

Once a year the Tai Chi Union of Great Britain (TCUGB) instructors, from all over the UK, run Tai Chi in the Park events to promote Tai Chi and other internal martial arts in the local community.  Instructors, students, practitioners, friends and family will meet in various parks in Great Britain to enjoy an afternoon of Tai Chi, just as it is traditionally done in China.  

This year's event will be held on 23rd July 2017 14:00 - 16:00 in the park opposite the Miller of Mansfield Pub in Goring-on-Thames or the Village Hall if the weather is bad!  No booking required, just turn up, watch or take part, please bring your family and friends … and perhaps a picnic!  Everyone is welcome.
