Jingle Bell Jive

People dressed in 1940s style dancing at the National Army Museum
Put on your dancing shoes for an evening of seasonal swing at our Christmas-themed 1940s dance night.

Swing and jive the night away at this special after-hours dance event.

Whether you’re an absolute beginner or already know your way around the floor, our friends from SwingdanceUK will be there to help show how it’s done. From Lindy Hop to Jitterbug, they’ll soon have you stepping out with their lessons for both new and improving dancers.

With live music from South London Jazz Orchestra and cabaret from the Diamond Girls, you’ll be shaking and shimmying to the best sounds of the ‘40s.

Hair and makeup artists Pretty Me Vintage will also be on hand (6.00pm to 9.30pm) to keep you looking the part.
