Electro Swing Bohemia Party

*** A PARTY WITH DJS, LIVE MUSICIANS AND DANCERS INSPIRED BY THE SWING ERA *** This exhilarating party offers the opportunity of immersion in the joyous energy of electro-swing tunes, to take part in a swing dance class, or just have a drink and enjoy the magnificent space of the art-deco Stern Hall.

Inspired by the glamorous swing era, we invited the Electro-Swing Bohemia collective, well known for throwing some of the best electro-swing parties in Europe, to bring their exuberant act to London. Fusing 1930’s swing and jazz with modern electronic music, Czech-o-Slovak DJ duo Swing Thing and Papa Django will be accompanied by saxophone player Matúš Tomala and London based electro-swing pioneer DJ Sacha Dieu. Professional dancers from JazzMAD London will perform an authentic swing & jazz dance routine and lead a free Lindy Hop dance class for all levels in the early party hours, with the whole night left to practice.

A pay bar stocked with craft beers, wines and spirits will be open all night long, and the make-up queen Milllicent Lashes will be offering bespoke makeovers throughout the evening.

Dress Code: Casual Fancy  or Vintage Fashion (1920s, 1930s, 1940s)
