TasSwing Christmas Party – Save the Date

16541423-christmas-greeting-card-vintage-design-674Save the date! The TasSwing end-of-year Christmas Party is booked in for December 13.

This year we’ll be holding the Christmas Party at the Polish Hall, and as a special treat we’ve booked the Clarence City Big Band orchestra to come along and play some classic big band tunes for you. As always, Barry will also be organising loads of ice-cream, so during the band break you’ll be able to tuck-in to some frosty desserts.

To cap it all off, we’ll still be running the beginners lesson first at 6:30pm before getting into the festivities.

The cost for the whole night is $30 (includes the lesson).

See the Facebook event here.
