2014 Happenings on Sir Winston Churchill Square
Swing 'n' Skate at City Hall
Swing ‘n’ Skate features live swing, jazz and big band music in the City Room at City Hall from 1:00 - 4:00 pm on Sundays until February 22, 2015. Local hep-cats, the Sugar Swing Dance Club, will help put the boogie-woogie in your step along with local acts pumping out the jazzy beats. If you’d rather be outdoors, the music will be broadcast directly outside for the enjoyment of ice skaters on City Hall Plaza. Free skate rentals will be available on a first come, first serve basis.
