Swingland runs two regular Friday night clubs - the monthly JUMPIN' (London) and quarterly Friday Night Swing (Windsor) plus occasional other weekend dances throughout the year, as well as supporting the unique annual Savoy Ball (returning 2018) and South London SwingFest (Easter weekend).
The Savoy Ball has been running for over ten years and is one of the highlights of the London swing dance and music calendar. A celebration of the original swing era, this is a chance to dress up and dance to some of the very best live music in one of London's finest period venues. The event features three live bands, a 1930s Cabaret show, Vintage stalls, cocktail bars and more.
South London SwingFest is a new annual weekend Festival for London, inaugurated in March 2015, with daytime workshops and 3 evening dances.
We also run other occasional Saturday dances - see below for events in the diary.
