This is boogie boogie and blues music at its most enjoyable, especially as there are upright pianos available for anyone who wants to participate. You might even find yourself playing alongside one of the stars of the show!
There are many free events, both indoors and outdoors, including music workshops and the dance events…jive, swing, lindy hop, tap and, of course, boogie woogie.
This is when Sturminster Newton comes alive with music and dance. All ages travel long distances to enjoy the fun; enthusiastic listeners, amateur players, musicians, singers and dancers. The atmosphere is ‘party’ and the music spellbinding.
If you’re travelling from afar, then the hotel near the UK International Boogie Woogie Festival is, of course, Plumber Manor …, but don’t leave it too late!
UK International Boogie Woogie Festival:
