Summertime swing is our own annual event we have organised since 2004. All the profits from tickets have gone to various charities over the years such a the RNLI, Sight Savers, The Not Forgotten Association, Sussex Air Ambulance, the Royal British Legion, the Mayor of East Grinstead's local charities and many others.
We have had special guest performers such as Keely Smith, Acker Bilk, Kenny Ball, Craig Douglas, Laurie London, Wee Willy Harris, Ray Gelato, Si Cranstoun, Gunhild Carling, Cassidy Janson, Mike Sanchez and many others.
