Hi everyone,
It's been a while since the last newsletter as we've been so amazingly busy but we hope its worth the wait as we have some VERY exciting news. Read on for the latest and greatest.

RAH logoLive at the Royal Albert Hall

The Jive Aces will be top the bill for a historic night at the Royal Albert Hall on 9th July. The world famous venue will be converted into London's largest ballroom (with a 5000 sq ft for a spectacular one-off dance night called "In Full Swing".

The event will have space for over 1400 swing and jive dancers (as well as those who just want to come and watch). Also featured are the Back to Basie Big Band and Top Shelf Jazz. This may well be the biggest swing dance in London since the end of the swing era itself! This is full nights entertainment in a stunning setting and we'll be kicking off our set at around 10:30pm after the other two bands. The whole evening runs until 1:00am so it really is "In Full Swing"!

Tickets are £25 for dance floor and there are table seats, boxes and hospitality tickets also available from www.royalalberthall.com or call 0845 401 5045.

If you're thinking of making a full night of it and staying in town then check out these two hotels who do special deals for Royal Albert Hall concert goers:

Hello MagHello to High Society

We were featured in "Hello" magazine entertaining the guests at the prestigious Berkeley Dress Show at the exclusive Hurlingham Club in London recently.

The show was the opening event in The London Season, at which debutantes took part in a fashion show, in the presence of guest of honour, Princess Olga Romanov.
