About the event

Here in Lancaster, our three sister organisations, Lancaster University Swing Dance Society, Lancaster Lindy Circle, and Bay Balboa have organised plenty of classes, social dances, balls and weekend long workshops, 2019 was our first multi stream festival. You enjoyed it, we enjoyed so lets do it all again in 2020!

Swingtoberfest is organised by Lancaster University Swing Dance Society with support from Lancaster Lindy Circle.


Swingtoberfest 2020 will take place on the weekend of 18th – 20th September (the same weekend Oktoberfest starts, hence the name!) We are awaiting final confirmation from our venue, so this date is provisional.
