Birthday News

💙Manchester Lindy turns THIRTEEN!💙

(And is feeling rather ‘Girl Interrupted’ about it!)

After a TWO YEAR break (that we rather optimistically thought would last about a month) we’re back (sort of) and IT’S TIME TO CELEBRATE!

Come dance with us! We’ve missed you!

Live Music! Real Dancing! Like The BEFORE TIMES

Main event @ Stretford Public Hall £10/£15

Doors: 7pm
Taster Class (suitable for complete beginners): 7.15pm
Live music with Sunday Best Jazz: 8-10pm

Then we’ll walk over the road for…

After Party @ Head (free)

Swing DJ (and a little bit of dancing room!) 10pm – midnight

(After party is free but please add a £0.00 ticket to your order, just so we know who is coming)

News – March – COVID19

News – March 2020

COVID19 – Coronavirus.

Swing Dancing is a high risk activity for virus transmission.

Manchester Lindy have taken the difficult decision to suspend all events for at least 4 Tuesdays 

(17th, 24th, 31st and 7th)

We will review the situation in early April. In the meantime, follow our Facebook group for community chat, wash your hands, stay safe, Manchester Lindy loves you and will see you soon 💙

and Manshagster!

Count down to the (unreasonably early) Xmas party begins!

In the words on the great Noddy Holder “it’s CHRIIIIIIIIIIIIIISTTTTTTTTTMMMMMMMMMMAAASSSSSSS’.

Except it isn’t. Not really, but due to a jam packed calendar of Lindy Hop events up north, we’re doing our version a week earlier than usual. 

Flash sale now on! Tickets only £5 via Dancefly.com until midnight Wednesday 23rd November.
PLEASE BRING A DONATION FOR STRETFORD FOODBANK!

Donate food

We’re incredibly excited to announce that this year’s Manchester Lindy Xmas party will feature Birmingham’s swingiest musical outfit, Martyn Nelson and the Rhythm Remedies! We’re returning to our favourite dance floor for an evening of ‘bring your own booze’ fuelled festive shenanigans.
Advance tickets only – £10 via Dancerfly.com
Plus! Charity cake sale in aid of NUV-HOP – http://nuvhop.weebly.com please bring along some baking to donate, and /or some cash to buy something tasty – this year’s charity has been nominated by Evie H – we’ll be donating all proceeds from the bake sale to Manchester Medical School students who will use it to fund their voluntary work, providing medical services to people in Uganda. 
Come and Swing Out with Martyn Nelson and the Rhythm Remedies on 27th November and help raise funds for our two nominated good causes.

We guarantee that you will want to get up and do your dancing thing, no matter how many mince pies you have consumed

Yes, yes. It’s a Sunday. Yes, we know some of you have to get up for work the next day, that’s why we are ending the main party at the civilised time of 9pm. 

And yes, we know some of you *don’t* have to get up for work on a Monday and definitely don’t *want* to go home at 9pm, so we’ve booked a second venue, The Robin Hood, a mere stumble across a car park away, for a bit of an after party. Entrance to the after party is included in the ticket price  but we ask you to register your intent to attend in advance. Entrance to the after party is limited so spaces will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. This is currently full but we will do our best to reassign places should they become available.

Party 1: St Matthews Church Hall,  Stretford (nearest tram stop, Stretford, Altrincham line) 5pm -9pm
Party 2: The Robin Hood, Stretford (nearest tram stop, Stretford, Altrincham line) 9pm onwards.
