A place with no rules or expectations, apart from

offering YOU a great time.

Immerse yourself in the joy of music and move to it YOUR way.  

We promise you a musical journey through the history of roots music from the
20s through
to the early 50s, with a genuine and comprehensive mix of

JAZZ, SWING, RnB, maybe some very early RnR, as well as a few

surprises thrown in - expect the unexpected

The event is welcoming, heart-warming, inclusive, celebratory, and encourages

cohesion within the music-loving community that we are part of.

Ultimately, it's immense FUN!

And, in keeping with the tone of the event, our DJs and bands will tune into 

your needs, whilst joyfully expressing themselves.  They know how to keep you

entertained and there really will be something for everyone. 

If you fancy learning some new dance skills, we have top class dance tuition


NOTE:  This is NOT a "dance camp". You don't need to register or sign up as a

lead or follow.  Lessons are primarily to give you something a bit extra and

are fun. They do get busy and will make you smile.

There are no competitions. So, please come and join a more informal

atmosphere and let yourself go.  

Various areas for your listening and dancing pleasure, including:

The Ballroom for evening entertainment with great bands and DJs.

The Cats' Corner for afternoon & evening sessions (including live bands).

A fantastic mix of music & dancing from our fabulous DJs, taking you through

to the early hours of the following day.

The Mess Around club for those who love 78s! The atmosphere in this room is

indescribable and needs to be experienced.  Not to be missed!
