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.
The 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 27th 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.
Happy New Year to all our members from Tredegar to Taipei and everywhere in between.
Our next dance will be in the Labour Hall and Institute in Abergavenny. As
well as being our first one of the new year it’s our first one outside of Chepstow, so for some it will be closer for others a little further. For Taipei members it won’t make that much difference, but we hope to see you at the next one.
Thank you all for your support in 2015 and here’s to more music fun and dancing in 2016
There is less than 1 week to go before our Xmas Party in Chepstow. Four great DJ’s playing the best romping’, stompin’, swingin’ ‘n’ rockin’ tunes.
We originally had 9 people on the waiting list, but we’re pleased to say that tickets that were unable to be used were handed back in to us, and now everybody who asked for a ticket has one. The waiting list is empty. Great job everyone.
All that’s left to be said is Merry Christmas, and see you Saturday.
We guessed we were going to be oversubscribed for our Swingdicate Xmas Party, but we never guessed we’d be SOLD OUT 10 days after letting you all know about it. In fact we are now running a waiting list for people who weren’t quite in time to register.

Last weeks 1940’s Big Band Party raised over £900 for Help for Heroes. Thanks again to everyone, who bought tickets, donated money, donated time and generally made it a spiffing Swingdicate evening. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
In 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
