If you’re fed up with the same old gig format, broaden your horizons a little at The Swung Eight’s fun-filled music and dance bash. The ‘dress-up-and-dance night’ present a summer special at Newcastle’s World Headquarters on Saturday 27th June, offering up some typical golden age glamour, killer cocktails and swinging sounds.

For those who haven’t attended before, the event encourages attendees to strut their stuff after enjoying a free swing dance lesson to a top soundtrack of swing, jazz, rhythm ‘n’ blues and jive with a distinctly retro twang. The summer special will also feature a hula hoop performance from Rosy Bloomers, a limbo contest and prizes for best dressed punters. Live music comes courtesy of the awesome talents of eight-piece dirty blues and vintage swing band House Of The Black Gardinia, plus there’s all sorts of tropical themed shenanigans from a nautical themed photo booth to pin-up hair styling and vintage cocktails will make the night go with a bang.
