YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED
Q: What’s the DRESS CODE?
A: Wear what you like – add a touch of Christmas cheer, go full vintage swing … Or you may like to dress in something that says “Swing Patrol” to you – a fondly remembered performance ball costume, an old troupe outfit, what did you wear to the famous S & P dress-up party? There’s 20 years of history to inspire you.
Q: Will there be allocated seating?
A: No. Your ticket gives you entry to the party. There won’t be much seating, especially in the Ballroom, so we can make space for dancing. There is a separate bar with some seating, for when you need a break or want to chat.
Q: Is there food available?
A: There may be some snacks at the bar (chips, nuts). But there’s plenty of eating spots in the immediate vicinity, so grab a bite before the party.
Q: Is it BYO?
A: No, there is a delightful bar at the venue, so please don’t BYO (though you can bring your water bottle … as long as you take it home with you.)
