Event description
Celebrate World Lindy Hop day with some free social dancing with Edinbop!

About this event

World Lindy Hop Days falls on the 26th May every year, a date chosen thanks to it being original Lindy Hopper Frankie Manning's birthday. And Edinbop wants to celebrate this wonderful dance with you!

Join us for some (free!) outdoor dancing at the Pavilion. We will have some of Edinburgh's finest DJs to get you grooving, as well as live music from Castle Rock Jazz Band.

We can't wait to see you there!

Castle Rock Jazz Band

Edinburgh's #1 Organ-based Jazz, Rhythm and Blues quintet. A "little big band" born out of Stompin' at Summerhall, CRJB are a group of dancers, playing for dancers. Their aim is to provide the hardest swinging tunes for any and all dancers, with their own take on the best of both classic and lesser-known swing tunes.
