The Great Gatsby Fair is Coming to Town

This family weekend event celebrates the Swing Eras 1920s-1950s and is held on Bexhill seafront beside the De La Warr Pavilion.

Friday night is The Great Gatsby Ball dancing to Some Like It Hotter. It will be held in the huge gala marquee on the lawns next to The De La Warr Pavilion from 7-10.30pm. Dress to impress for this one.

On Saturday we create the biggest Charleston Dance on the south coast, free for everyone to join in. Feel free to dress as comfortably as you like or in period clothing.

Throughout Saturday dance to the jazz and swing bands and the Sleepy Lagoon Orchestra, watch dance displays and enter the best dressed competitions with the Charleston and Peaky Blinders theme on Saturday with cash prizes.

Jim Jivin Dandy will host the tea dance on Saturday afternoon. In the evening from 7.00pm -10.30pm it is the fantastic Jitterbug Ball and this year we bring you the best entertainment with the Swing Street Band and guests.
