Buxton Festival Dance Band presents ‘Music to Dance to’

Sun 17 July 2022

Join us for a night in the beautiful surroundings of the Octagon as we take a step back in time.

Our very own 10-piece big band, a swinging rhythm section plus three saxophones, two trombones and two trumpets.  Guest singers are Andy Bayley and Emma Holcroft who will play the songs that makes you want to dance.

During the first set, as you sit back and enjoy a drink, our professional ballroom dancers will show you the moves, from tango to foxtrot, to jive to rumba. After the interval, the floor is open for us all to have a go. So, be brave, bring your dancing shoes and get ready to dance. Waltz to Moon River, quickstep to Sing Sing Sing and get your Latin moves ready for Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps.
