Description

A SPECTACULAR evening of swing music and dancing brought to you by Friends of Dobcross School (FODS)

The Autumn Swing Ball will take place on Friday, 13th October 2017 at the Uppermill Civic Hall. All profits going to FODS for their fundraising for Dobcross Holy Trinity Primary School.

The event is set to be lively and entertaining with a smart dress code. The evening will begin with a glass of prosecco from 7pm while guests mingle and soak up the atmosphere. Canapés are also included in the ticket price and a selection of delicious treats will be served at your table.

After a warm welcome by the evening’s compere Peter Young OBE, local singer Rachel Booth will launch the entertainment by drawing from her wide repertoire of popular songs.

After a short interval it will be time to kick off your shoes and dance the night away David James and The Big Shot Swing Orchestra take the stage.

The 17-piece Big Band, fronted by our very own David James Bottomley of Dobcross, the Orchestra comprises top class musicians from world famous bands including Black Dyke, Grimethorpe Colliery, the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, the London West End Show Band, Martha and The Vandellas, Stax of Soul and The Blues Brothers touring band.

And their extensive repertoire features classic tunes by Michael Bublé, The Rat Pack, Glen Miller as well as a host of big band favourites – with the royal seal of approval as they have twice played at the home of the Duke of Westminster.

And Big Jim’s Disco will finish the evening for those still wanting more.

There are a limited number of circular tables for ten people and rectangular tables for eight people available in the main dance hall, priced at £25 per person and complete with a wine waitress service. Wine can be pre-ordered and will be waiting for you at your table when you arrive.

Tickets are available from Dobcross Post Office or please email FODS at dobcrossFODS@gmail.com or via their FODS Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/friendsofdobcrossschool
