The Big Swing with the Bruce / Ilett Big Band
March 16, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Party like it’s 1949!
Our regular celebration of all things Swing returns by popular demand. Hall 1 will be transformed into a 1940s style ballroom for this very special event. Featuring 17 of the South West’s best musicians, the aim is simple; to recreate the golden era of Swing. The 17-piece The Bruce/Ilett Big Band perform authentic versions of classics from great bands such as Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington and Harry James for dancers and listeners alike. Get your dancing shoes on for a night of Lindy Hopping, Jitterbugging and Jiving!
Dress code: 1930s-50s.
Dancing ticket (Band A) or balcony seats for those who just want to watch & listen (Band B).
