The Bristol Swing Festival is a unique Lindy Hop and Circus collaboration, and a friendly and playful dance festival. It takes place over the 4-day Easter weekend 14th-17th April 2017.
A Social Pass entitles you to attend four of the festival parties:

Friday 6pm-midnight: Welcome party with food/social space available early, solo jazz dance class at 7.30pm, then dancing til midnight. Includes an introduction to the festival teachers.
Saturday 9pm-1.30am: Dress up for our dance which includes the spectacular Swing Circus cabaret.
Sunday 9pm-1.30am: We'll have a short Jack n Jill contest (with a little Bristol twist), plus dance to the fantastic sounds of the Big R Big Band.
