The spirit of swing is heading for Batley for a night of dancing fun. Batley Business and Retail Alliance (BBRA), Birstall Chamber of Trade and the Heckmondwike Business Alliance (HBA) have joined forces to host a 1940s-style big band swing dance at St Mary’s Parochial Hall in Melton Street on Saturday April 27. Dance The Night Away will feature live music from the Dewsbury and Mirfield Music Centre Swing Band. Doors open at 7pm. Tickets, available from Brearleys Solicitors in Brunswick Street, Batley, cost £10 and include a hot supper.
