One of the features of Summertown Swing is the old school CD DJ set as well as more modern digital formats remastered from the originals. All this for your dancing pleasure. It provides you with some of the most eclectic and loved sounds of the Jazz Age as well as those inspired by it. Entry is only £6 and you can pay by cash or card on the door.

Tea & Cake & A Warm Welcome For Everyone

For those who enjoy a treat there is always a wonderful spread of cakes to enjoy with your tea and coffee. There will also be some savoury snacks for those who don’t have a sweet tooth. Come along and catch up with friends for a relaxed and enjoyable afternoon of music and dancing.

Summertown Swing Social offers a welcome to everyone and tries to provide a unique environment where dancers feel able to bring their non-dancing family and children. It’s perfect for young families who don’t feel they get the time to get out to dance anymore. It also provides an opportunity to catch up with friends. There will usually be a few toddlers who have been studying mum and dad’s dance moves and already look destined to be swing dancers in the future.

Tea dances are a time-honoured tradition that dates back to the early 20th century, where people would gather in the afternoon to dance, socialise, and enjoy a cup of tea.

Tea dances are not just about the dancing and the refreshments; they are also about building connections and fostering a sense of community. People of all ages and backgrounds come together to share in the joy of dance and engage in light-hearted conversations. Consequently a tea dance is a time for laughter, reminiscing, and creating new memories. Come and join us and help us create some.

A tea dance is a perfect opportunity for both seasoned dancers and beginners to come together and enjoy the dance floor. It provides a relaxed and welcoming environment for people to learn new steps, practice their skills, or simply watch and appreciate the art of swing dance.
