Weekend events

Weekend dances, festivals and swing balls!

Swingland runs seasonal Saturday night Swing Balls where you can dress up and enjoy the very best live Big Band music! We also run a monthly Sunday night dance Elysian Den and occasional Friday night dances throughout the year.


Swingland also supports the legendary annual Savoy Ball (returning April 2021!) and South London SwingFest

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 - and Harlem's great Savoy Ballroom - 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 live bands, a 1930s Cabaret show, Vintage stalls, cocktail bars and more.

South London SwingFest is an annual weekend swing music and dance festival in South London, inaugurated in March 2015, with daytime workshops and evening dances featuring the very best live bands.
