Take a step back into 1920s & 30s New York City and through the doors of Harlem’s hottest nightclub, The Cotton Club!

Swinging at The Cotton Club is the action-packed show celebrating the music and dance of the Cotton Club – New York’s most celebrated nightclub of the 1920s and 30s.

Performances by Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Fats Waller would have had the club swinging – whilst dancers such as Bojangles Robinson and the Nicholas Brothers lit-up the stage with their breathtaking routines.

In this show, the exhilarating dance and music of the Cotton Club is recreated by the fabulous Lindy Hop Dance Company, alongside The Harry Strutters Hot Rhythm Orchestra, featuring American vocalist Marlene Hill and compere/vocalist Megs Etherington.

Running time: Approx. 2hrs, 20mins including interval

Please note: If you want to dance, book a seat in the stalls. If you want to stay seated, book a seat in the circle where the rake is too steep for us to allow dancing. More details can be found on the Extra Info tab.

Dancing in the Auditorium

We know that some of our audiences love to get up and have a dance when they come to see bands and tribute acts at the Belgrade, and that’s fine by us as long as they’re seated in the Stalls section of the auditorium, and are considerate of other audience members around them and not disrupt their enjoyment of the show.

For those patrons who want to remain seated we recommend that they book their seats in the Circle* where dancing is prohibited due to the rake of the seats making it unsafe.

For productions other than musical tributes audiences must remain seated throughout the production. Thank you for your co-operation.

*Please note that for health and safety reasons this also includes boxes G and I.

Thank you for your co-operation.
