The evening starts with beginner and intermediate Lindy Hop classes, followed by general dancing until the small hours. In the Rendezvous Ballroom, with its large wood floor, you can dance to swing, jump jive and the sounds of the 1950s. The Smalls Paradise plays specialist music sets, including rhythm and blues and early jazz and swing.

Tickets cost £12, with concessions for members. See for details.
