Stapleford Umbrella Big Band will be performing at a ballroom dance being held next month at the HIAM Sports and Social Club in Prickwillow.

The event on Friday September 25 will see the band return to play great music from across the decades, from the 1930s to the modern day.

The rich orchestral sound of the saxophones, trumpets, trombones, rhythm section and singers of the 19-piece Umbrella Big Band give you the best from the famous bands of Glen Miller, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Joe Loss, The National Youth Jazz Orchestra and many more.

It starts at 8pm and runs until 11.45pm with two intervals. Doors open at 7pm.

There will be a raffle, and barbecue food will be on sale, in the form of jumbo sausages and locally produced burgers - quarter pound or vegetarian.
