Howden Shire Hall and Feathersteps School Of Dance are excited and proud to welcome back the amazing SWING COMMANDERS!

After making a hugely successful debut at The Shire Hall in 2018, the Swing Commanders were keen to return for another gig! So here they are, and once again, they are REALLY not to be missed...

"If it swings, they can, and will play it!"


The Swing Commanders is a stunningly vibrant and versatile group that performs an exciting mix of 1940s classics, boogie-woogie, western swing, 50’s jump jazz and much more!

During sets, Sophie of Feathersteps School Of Dance will keep you dancing with popular music from the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s. So take to the floor for a Charleston, or perhaps a Square Tango? Maybe try Lindy Hop? Is Jive and Rock'n'Roll more your thing? Don't forget the general boogie! So come along and DANCE THROUGH THE DECADES!

Enter our Ballroom to find a Time Warped Dance Hall. Each table will be decorated with memorabilia, along with the favourite sweets from that specific decade. The walls will be adorned with posters and vinyl from the years of the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s.

Vintage & Retro dress optional but encouraged.
