Southbank Centre’s Light Fantastic Weekend

Posted on June 24, 2011

Southbank Centre is putting on an afternoon of dancing this weekend, on Sunday, June 26, in the Clore Ballroom. The John Wilson Big Band will play from 5–6.30pm, as part of the Light Fantastic Weekend, celebrating light music from 1951.

After 6.30pm, there will be recorded music from the 1950s and 1960s until 9pm. There will be no performances – so put your dancing shoes on!

Nicola Rayner was editor of Dance Today from 2010 to 2015. She has written for a number of publications including The Guardian, The Independent and Time Out Buenos Aires, where she cut her teeth as a dance journalist working on the tango section. Today she continues to dance everything from ballroom to breakdance, with varying degrees of success. Her debut novel, The Girl Before You, was published last year in paperback, ebook and audiobook.
