The Big Swing – Double Bill

Following the incredible success of last year’s Big Swing Dance, the 17-piece Bruce/Ilett Big Band and legendary Godfather of Swing, Ray Gelato & His Giants will transport Colston Hall back to an era when swing reigned supreme. Get your dancing shoes on for night of lindy hopping, jiving and jitterbugging or just sit back in the balcony and watch the spectacle unfold! Either way, it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing!

Tickets for both concerts receive a 15% discount.
