Christmas Swing & Jam Party

Grounded at Portico Gallery Friday 4 December, presented a night out of full-on fun and serious entertainment.

Drink In | Jam | Party | 7.30 - 12 midnight

  • Performance with Temujin Gill and Sunanda Biswas' Grounded and special guests
  • Social dancing and live music from the Candid Jug Orange Band
  • Great sounds from Jazz and Swing to Funk and Hip Hop 
  • Festive food and friendly bar

The Portico Gallery, located at the wonderful Knights Hall built in 1885, even played host to Charlie Chaplin who performed to an audience arriving on horse-drawn carriages. 

We couldn't offer carriages but we definitely had an equally memorable experience to savour, with a great atmosphere and vibe created by all.

We're looking forward to the next Swing & Jam Club and doing more at The Portico Gallery so do keep an eye out for our forthcoming events - dates available shortly!

Oh yes, and they created the memorable NHS Swing Out Sister - a.k.a 'first star to the right and straight on til morning' - for Danny Boyle's award-winning London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony.

So if you're up for a fun, swinging, highly contagious and stomping experience, this should be right down your street!
