Notes:

This Meetup Group is only for London Swing Dancers and is not suitable for unaccompanied children. Nearly all the events listed on this Meetup Group will also be attended by people who have not registered on Meetup - this means that you may not recognise some of the other people at the event (but don't worry: swing dancing is very friendly and inclusive!).

In general, it is legal to form a peaceful assembly of up to 20 people in public places, so long as it does not cause annoyance or obstruction. You can make a 'reasonable' level of noise in public (but if anyone challenges you, it's probably best to just politely move away a bit). Please respect other people, especially late at night.

Local regulations apply in certain places (e.g. around Parliament Square and Trafalgar Square) and most parks have restrictions on groups of 20 people or more (40 people or more in Hyde Park and Regent's Park).

Free Swing Dancing at Spitalfields

Amphitheatre Canopy, Bishops Square

This is a Swing Patrol event (I have nothing to do with it, but I'm just posting the event for people who don't get Swing Patrol's newsletter.) The event is held under the Amphitheatre Canopy (the "sails") at Spitalfields, which means that (except for horizontal rain) this event will be practically weather-proof. Here is a link to the Swing Patrol website so that you can check for any last minute changes: https://www.swingpatrol.co.uk/events/under-the-sails/25-07-2019/
