The Honeymoon Swing Dance band is making moves and throwing shapes in the swing dance community and fast earning a name as something different from Rock n Roll or Big Band, concentrating on tunes and songs for Lindy Hop, Balboa and Collegiate Shag with a few Jive numbers thrown in. The Watson Hall, Tewkesbury is a great swing dance venue - Wooden sprung floor, plenty of room if you want to keep your distance, a good bar and only two miles from the M5 junction 9. Between sets DJ Steve Amor will be busy choosing dance records. This should be a defining event for easing out of isolation and back into the good times. It is happening the same day as Tewkesbury Classic vehicle show so why not make a day and night of it? The Dance is running from 6pm until 9pm, so you can have your feet up with the Coco by 10.00.
