Swingland - The 1931 Club

The 1931 Club evokes the origins of The Bedford (est 1931) in the heady days of the original jazz and early swing era.

How to get to The 1931 Club

The Bedford

The 1931 Club is held at The Bedford - a stunning period venue (pub, club, restaurant, live music & entertainment venue, and hotel!) in the heart of South London.

The Bedford is at 77 Bedford Hill, Balham, London SW12 9HD.

The Ballroom at The Bedford

As well as being a friendly and vibrant community pub, The Bedford is a renowned live music venue, and has been home to many of Swingland's events since mid-2000. Dating back to 1931, the building was subject to a £multi-million renovation in 2018 - sympathetic to the original style, and retaining plenty of period features. The bar downstairs is open for drinks, meals and snacks throughout the evening. The ballroom upstairs - where you'll find us via the original marble staircase - is absolutely stunning.

Entrance to The 1931 Club is via the pub doors on Bedford Hill, then the door to the right which takes you to the staircase. The ballroom, where you'll find us, is on the first floor.
