Pavilion Summer Jive

Pavilion Summer Jive

A chance to get all your summer colours on and kick the season off to a great start! An evening in the fabulous setting of Bournemouth Pavilion, a real dance floor in an Art Deco ballroom. No fixed dress code but summer dresses, Hawaiian shirts etc. will be very welcome.

DJ is Bruce Gridley who will celebrating his birthday and joys of dancing with some memorable tunes, he is giving his time for free. Bruce has been a jive dance DJ for many years reaching 4th Southern Jive DJ awards one year. He still does Jive Dance and Birthday Parties.  Bruce'll be playing all the latest dance tunes together with Latin classics and popular retro tracks, Jackie Wilson, T Rex, Motown, Enrique, Caro Emerald, Bubble, Frank, Nat King Cole, Dean Martin....and all your requests are very welcome, where does it end!

There will be a silent raffle.  Any offers of prizes gratefully received!  Email me  

I'm really sorry but I have to raise the entrance cost to £12. The Pavilion have increased their charges and I'm introducing buying on line which takes a percentage. As always all the profits go to charity.

£12 booked in advance which you can cancel for a full refund up to 2 weeks before the event.  £13 on the night. This event is nearly always sold out.

The cost of parking contributed to the demise of jiving at the Pavilion before, and I'm afraid nothing has changed in that regard! I'll try to link up people who want to share cars. Otherwise, cheaper parking is available at Central Car Park, Upper Hinton Road, Bournemouth, BH1 2HH at £5 for all evening. It's a four minute walk from the Pavilion. Or there is currently, free parking along the cliff top after 8pm.

Now sponsored by Barclays Bank pound for pound scheme so profits will be increased by 50%!!
