The Swing Spectacular!
The Swing Spectacular returns to Colchester for its third year of unmissable swing entertainment celebrating music and dance from the ‘20s to the ‘50s! After two consecutive sell-out nights in 2016 and 2017, Jazz vocalist Lydia Bell and the Sweeting Swing Band are back to stoke the fires of the #swingrevolution, this time in the grand venue of the Moot Hall in Colchester Town Hall. As well as the essential live big band, there will be swing dance lessons and performances from the sensational troupe ‘The Seaside Stompers’, a speakeasy-style cocktail bar, and other vintage inspired activities.
If your dancing shoes don’t quite fit any more or you’d rather just socialise and listen to some great music, never fear, there is seating available, along with other exciting entertainment for you to enjoy! However, you are advised to arrive early to ensure you get a seat.
Organiser and singer Lydia is again supporting Emmaus Colchester by donating all profits of the event to this charity. Emmaus UK is a charity helping homeless people get back on their feet through community building, a cause which is very important in today’s society. Please consider this and spread the word about the event. See more about their work here: www.emmaus.org.uk/colchester
