Swingin’ at the Spiegel

On Saturday 18th May, Swing Patrollers danced up a storm in the Spiegel Tent to the sounds of the Brighton Jazz Mafia Big Band. This amazing All Star 18 piece band, formed from the cream of the Brighton jazz scene, recreated the iconic sounds of the 40s and 50s and we all had a blast!

Kicking off at 1pm with a taster class for complete Beginners, we then jumped straight into an awesome afternoon of social dancing. The event was part of the Brighton Fringe Festival and a massive thank you to those that were part of this sold out event.
