Buffet supper and dance with The Swing Machine Big Band – Friday 27th September 2024

The Swing Machine Big Band recreates the much-loved sounds of the 30s, 40s and 50s. While their extensive repertoire is rooted in the Swing Era, Swing Machine includes modern arrangements in their programmes.

Their forte, of course, is swing music and they take great delight in bringing to their audiences the music of Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Ted Heath, Woody Herman, Duke Ellington and Stan Kenton etc.

Top-class vocalists cover songs made famous by Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darn, Ella Fitzgerald, Michael Buble, Harry Connick Jr., etc. plus some fabulous soloists who add the ‘icing on the cake’ to the arrangements.

An evening of elegance, dining and dancing… a night not to be missed! – Dress up make it really special.

This event is taking place in in a beautiful sailcloth tent at the Froize. Please be sure to come prepared with warm layers!

Doors will be open and buffet supper served from 7pm (vegan, vegetarian, GF, DF and carnivorous diets catered for).

Please note: All tickets include a 5% booking fee.
