Taking you back to Thirties New York: The Savoy Ball
Re-live the style, glamour and romance of the great swing era with an evening of big band swing, cabaret, vintage style and dancing til the early hours in one of London’s finest period venues. Taking you back to the New York of the Thirties, the Ball features three of the very best swing bands in the land, a full 15-piece Swing Orchestra, a 9-piece swingin’ Big Band and a hot 5-piece too!
The Savoy Ball Cabaret will be putting on a dazzling show, bringing back the dances of the Twenties, Thirties and Forties – featuring tap, lindy hop, Charleston, jazz and variety.
Just like the Savoy Ballroom of the Thirties and Forties the Savoy Ball attracts both non-dancers and dancers – including some of the finest Lindy hoppers around – in equal numbers, so don’t be scared to come along if you can’t dance, simply enjoy the jazz club, sip a cocktail and soak up the atmosphere.
Dress code: vintage or black tie (denim, t-shirts and trainers are strictly off-limits and will be refused admission)
