Next Events

We’ve been a little slow off the mark this year following our January dance in Abergavenny, but hopefully we’ll make up for that with out next two dance nights.

AbergavennyThe 1st is a repeat of the fantastic night we had at the Abergavenny Labour Hall just after the new year. It’s taking place at the Labour Hall on Saturday 16th  April. If it’s anything like the last one there the atmosphere promises to blow your socks off, so don’t miss it.

The 2nd night takes place in a new venue for us, The Severn Bridge SocialClub in Bulwark, Chepstow on Friday Hammond27th May, and features the 88 keys and backbeat drums of The Sweet Georgia Boys,  Rock n Roll, n Boogie Woogie duo. These guys are superb musicians and we’re lucky to have them between their appearances at the Atomic and Glastonbury Festivals. Just a fiver on the door for a rip roaring Boogie Woogie Dance Party.

Help For Heroes Swing Era Big Band Night

1940s DanceIn Commemoration of the end of the 2nd World War, 70 years ago this year, we’re hosting a 1940’s Big Band Party Night, where all the profits will go to  to support members of our armed forces who have sustained life changing injuries from modern day conflicts.

We’ have the fabulous A470’s Big Band providing the music from the Swing era, along with our very own Reverend Dai Hep filling in the gaps with some solid swing tunes. For an added touch of vintage glamour, dress in 1940’s style , to be sure of a chance of winning one of the best dressed prizes. All in all, we think it’s going to be quite a night.

To accommodate the BIG Band, we’re holding the dance at the Drill Hall in Chepstow, a much larger venue than usual for us. Tickets are strictly limited, so be sure to get yours in plenty of time by contacting a Swingdicate committee member or online here. It’s all happening on Saturday September 12th

AND, it gets even better.

In The Beginning

Monday 12th January saw the inaugural meeting of our unnamed collective in the Two Rivers in Chepstow. We had many suggestions for a name, but by an anonymous vote we decide on SWINGDICATE. The rest  as they say, is the future….
