Halloween Swing Ball

Posted on October 26, 2011


“You’ve heard of the Big Apple, now come and learn the Giant Pumpkin,” so say the folks at London Swing Dance Society as they prepare for their Halloween Swing Ball on Saturday, October 29.

From 7.30pm to 2am, two rooms at Holborn’s 4 Wild Court will be filled with “horrifying music and terrifying dancing – a great monster mash!” 
The ball will offer two large floors of music and dancing with top DJs Simon “Mr Kicks” Selmon, Tim’s Jumpin’ Jive and more, a licensed bar to wet your whistle and of course prizes for the scariest jumpin’ jitterbugs and the wickedest witches!
 The dress code is “Halloween fancy”. For more, see
