Electro Swing Ball

The Electro Swing Ball is delighted to be part of Telford’s 50th birthday celebrations by returning to Oakengates Theatre to host another spectacular evening of vintage glamour and spell-binding entertainment inspired by the swing era!

Swing dance class

We will welcome you from 7.30pm, with Jazz Jive Swing kicking off the evening at 8pm with their wonderfully fun style of swing dance class – so don’t forget your dancing shoes! The ever-so-gorgeous James from Jazz Jive Swing will also compère the Ball, guiding us all through the evening with his sparkling charm and hilarious antics.

Live music

In terms of live music we have enough toe-tapping, ear-pleasing, booty-shaking swing to party like its 1929!

Cabaret, burlesque & circus acts

As always we will emerge you in the unique decadence of the Electro-Swing Ball and surround you with cabaret dancers, beautiful burlesque and incredible circus performers!

Dress code

To honour Telford’s 50th birthday our dress code is ‘All that Glitters is Gold!’ Think 1920s high glamour, swing and flapper, feather boas, red lipstick, high heels and faux fur. Dapper gentlemen and beautiful ladies!

Vintage beauty parlour

The gorgeous Blusherettes Vintage Beauty Parlour will be onsite from the early afternoon offering divine vintage makeovers so you can feel as glamorous as the screen sirens from by-gone days.

So what are you waiting for? Spread the word, gather your loved ones, get your tickets and start planning your outfit because the Electro-Swing Ball is coming back to Oakengates Theatre and it’s going to be the bee’s knees!

Dress up, feel the love and get your swing on!
