It's back! Riviera Swing 1930s and 1940s weekender February 2013


Riviera Swing flyerFollowing the success of the first Riviera Swing event in 2012, we are excited to hear that this long weekender is back for February 2013! The perfect anecdote to the Christmas and New Year come-down, and an excuse to get lots more mileage out of those lovely party frocks, vintage suits and dancing shoes!

Put the dates in your diary now - this long weekender runs from Friday 15th February - Monday 18th February 2013 and features live music from The Pasadena Roof Orchestra, Lola Lamour and her Blue Light Boys, and the Little Devils. There will be piano sing-a-longs with the lovely Kate Garner and music from the the UK 's greatest period DJs, The Swingin' Detective, O-Kay for Sound and Rob Be-Bop.

Put your best foot forward with dance instruction by Mark and Hoc Ewing, and then sit back to take in a fascinating selection of classic vintage cinema by the White Bus. On Saturday during the day, enjoy some retail therapy at the event's large Vintage Fair, and top it all off with a swim in the hotel's huge indoor pool.

This unique event is hosted by Viv The Spiv and is held at the Victoria Hotel in Torquay, the English Riviera - a 325 capacity hotel with three ballrooms as well as a snug bar to enjoy a tipple ...

Organised by Mark 'Snowboy' Cotgrove  (a musician, band-leader, DJ, author, music critic and promoter - as well as being curator of the 1940s section of Wayne Hemingway's Vintage Festival!) and Tony Morrison (who has over 15 years experience organising music & dance events, including Latinfest UK) - there is no doubt that you'll be in good hands at this weekender!
