Saturday 21st May Spring Swing Spectacular, Colchester Arts Centre

Put on your dancing shoes and come along to the Spring Swing Spectacular! The night will be a grand celebration of music from the ‘20s to the ‘50s, featuring young vocalist Lydia Bell, and other special guests. With a dance floor surrounded by tables and chairs you can watch, listen and socialise (there is also a bar) if you don't feel like dancing.

WHAT A NIGHT! THANK YOU SO MUCH to everybody who came! We completely sold out, with well over 280 people including band and crew! It was so clear how much everybody enjoyed swingin' the night away. I couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable debut! I am utterly honoured. Thank you all for your wonderful comments throughout the night. I feel like making an Oscars speech. Here goes...
Thank you to the Sweeting Swing Band for playing fantastically throughout the night- you are all superstars who have made my dream a reality!
Thank you and a massive well done to The Gatsby Girls for your incredible dancing and glamorous welcome. Colchester needs you back again!
Thank you to Jess Dives and Caitlin Arnott for singing with me in our beautiful harmonious trio!
