Welcome to Palm Swings!

 Palm Swings 2020 is a lindy hop weekender running from 31st January to 2nd February. We think its one of the friendliest and best value swing weekends on the calendar! (But then of course we would say that!).


Our festival offers:

World class teachers; confirmed for 2020 we have Simon and Anna Selmon, Cat Foley and Jeff Tong, all welcomed from the London Swing Dance Scene.

Full residential accommodation at our new venue “The Livermead House Hotel” with breakfast and 4 course dinner included – no more dodgy takeaways or trekking to class, you can get from your bedroom to the dance floor in 2 minutes! For more details of our new venue click here.

Live music from incredible musicians; including a Big Band for the Saturday Night party, and Just Misbehavin’, the favourite for our Sunday Afternoon Tea Dance.

All happening on wonderful dance floors in one of Torquay’s oldest and friendliest stately hotels. What more can you ask for?!

Last year was our fastest ever sell out, and we had a ball, so get in quick to Join in the Jazz again!
