Ever wanted to experience a nightclub portraying the music, glamour and style of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers ? Well that’s exactly what the 1930s Coco Club does and has been doing for the past six years.
It celebrates the golden age of British Dance Band music, with hints of Europe and Latin America thrown in. Musical authenticity is paramount, and so the 1920s may be ventured into, but nothing is played beyond the year 1939.
Headlining the Coco Club’s debut in Devizes, in the beautiful surroundings of the Ceres Hall at the Corn Exchange, will be the wonderful 11-piece Red Fez Orchestra featuring vocalist, Kate Skellern. Between performances, Empire Radio provide original period recordings for further dancing pleasure.
Style and glamour are bywords for the night, and so black or white tie, evening or cocktail dresses are encouraged.
This very friendly evening successfully integrates people of all age groups, and the level of dancing is varied, so anyone can move around the floor just as it suits them or just enjoy the atmosphere and music. There also various eventful period novelty dances that have become firm favourites !
All of these factors combine to provide a truly memorable atmosphere.
The Coco Club Valentine’s Ball is on Saturday 9th February.
Doors open 7.30pm; Carriages 11.30pm. A Licensed bar will be available.
Tickets £20 via the Devizes Bookshop or online at: www.wegottickets.com/cococlub.
