Midsummer Swing Dance

Posted on June 27, 2011

There are just 30 tickets left for Gloster Jive and Swing’s Midsummer Dance at Walls Sports and Social Club, Barnwood, Gloucestershire on Saturday, July 9. Laura B & The Moonlighters, a seven-piece rhythm and blues combo in the style of Ruth Brown, Big Maybelle and Lavern Baker, will provide a big beat sound for the night along with “a performance to match many of the great R’n’B artistes of the 1950s”. See Gloster Jive and Swing’s website for a video of last year’s performance. 

The Midsummer Dance will take place from 7:30pm until 11:30pm and tickets are now on sale for just £11. Cheques are to be made payable to Gloster Jive and Swing Dance and sent to 43 Estcourt Road, Gloucester GL1 3LU, along with your email address and phone number. Tickets can’t be held on the door, so please include a SAE for the return of tickets. Tickets can also be purchased online via PayPal and will include postage and packing for just £12
