Colchester Town Hall filled with Charleston-ers!


Another roaring success for The Swing Spectacular run by Lydia Bell, held at Colchester Town Hall on 5th May 2018, raising £500 for the homeless charity, Emmaus.

This year held at a different stunning venue, the grand Moot Hall at Colchester Town Hall was filled with excited party-goers from all walks of life.

Lydia pulled off another undeniable success, with a completely packed out venue, and happy guests all around. The room was filled with excitement, everybody dressed to the nines and having a splendid vintage-inspired time. Lydia and the Sweeting Swing band entertained the crowds with their usual flair for authentic swing, with a special appearance from the brand new trio The Bell Sisters (led by Lydia).

Guests enjoyed vintage cocktails served from a hand-crafted art-deco inspired cocktail bar, took silly photos in everybody’s favourite ‘photo booth’, taking home polaroids of the night to keep forever, and danced the night away with the help of the fantastic Seaside Stompers.

It is clear that Lydia has captured the attention of the people of Colchester and Essex as she continues to prove that swing music and dancing are something that everyone can enjoy.
