People danicing to the live entertainment
Throughout the week, there'll will be a dance marquee which will be playing music from 12.45pm through until 11pm - giving you the chance to put on your dancing shoes and take part in some swing and jive. If you want some practice first though, you can go along to the morning dance workshops.
There will be a constant flow of music throughout the town every lunchtime, afternoon and into the evenings. The event will provide a range of music such as blues and ragtime to mainstream, old-style New Orleans, bop and classic jazz.
