In the swing of things

As the celebration of Telford’s 50th birthday continues, one event is set to bring a sprinkling of vintage glamour to the borough. The Electro Swing Ball is returning to Oakengates Theatre on Saturday 17 November to host another spectacular evening of spellbinding entertainment inspired by the swing era.

The event includes a swing dance class from 7.30pm, with Jazz Jive Swing taking over the floor, followed by live music in the shape of the lively Swinghoppers. DJs will then take over the turntables to deliver a range of vintage remix and swing tunes, including Emma Clair, creator of Manchester-based electro-swing club night, Prohibition. J’Adore La Vie’s glamourous dancers will also strut their stuff, and Bertie Dastard will top the night off with his dapper demeanour and rakish charm. To find out more and book tickets, visit
