Palace Avenue Swing

Featuring a swinging rhythm section and hot horns up front, Palace Avenue Swing takes it inspiration from the small groups of the 1930-50s such as Count Basie, Teddy Wilson, Charlie Christian and Benny Goodman - with vocal inspiration from Bille, Ella, Aretha and Peggy Lee to name but a few.

With the wonderful Cherise Adams-Burnett on vocals, the band is guaranteed to fill the dance floor and swing out in style!

How to get to The Winter Swing Ball

The Winter Swing Ball will be held at The Hammersmith Club - a stunning period dance hall in the heart of West London.

The Hammersmith Club is located one street back from the Riverside next to Hammersmith Bridge. The waterfront stretches from Hammersmith Bridge to Chiswick Eyot.

Website www.hammersmithclub.co.uk/

The Hammersmith Club is at 11 Rutland Grove, Hammersmith, London W6 9DH.

By tube - Piccadilly, District or Hammermsith & City Lines to Hammersmith, 5-10 minutes walk.

Entrance gates From the tube exit cross towards King Street and then walk up Blacks Road into Hammersmith Bridge Road - Rutland Grove is the last turning on the right before the river/bridge.
Alternatively walk up King Street and turn left opposite Primark then continue straight (Bridge Ave then Bridge View after crossing under the flyover) until you reach Rutland Grove (look for Digby Mansions).

Turn right into Rutland Grove and the venue is on your left nestled between smart townhouses.

The venue is accessed via iron gates and a courtyard. Please use the double white doors to the left of the building.


By bus - any bus over Hammersmith Bridge - there is a stop right at the end of Rutland Grove.

By car - Just off the A4, Hammersmith is easily accessible by car from all directions. There is parking outside the venue in Rutland Grove, and in local streets - free after 6.30pm. Alternatively Kings Mall car park is just off King Street, 5 mins walk from the venue, and is very good value.

Getting home

Carriages are at midnight so public transport should all still be working.

Bar and eating

The bar in the dance hall will be open throughout the evening.

There is a small selection of crisps etc. available but nothing substantial so please eat beforehand - 5 minutes walk from the venue is Hammersmith's busy King Street, with a fantastic selection of bars, pubs, cafés and restaurants.
