Leading jazz singer Clare Teal presents a Late Night Prom with a difference as we are transported back to the swing era of the 1930s and 1940s with two of the greatest bands of the day, led at the time by Count Basie and Duke Ellington. With selections including Jumpin’ at the Woodside and It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing), and culminating in a bespoke ‘Battle Royal’, the roof will surely be raised as these giants of jazz do battle for the approval of the audience.

There will be no interval
