Get into the Christmas spirit with a little help from Down for the Count’s 30-piece ensemble, performing festive favourites from the likes of Nat King Cole, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra, at Cheltenham Town Hall on Wednesday 6 December 2023.

Between tours, Down for the Count can be found selling out jazz venues like Ronnie Scott’s and Cadogan Hall in London, having also performed at Wembley, Claridges, The Natural History Museum, and Royal Ascot among many other spectacular venues and popular festivals, while members of its orchestra have also worked with Elton John and Jools Holland.

See its award-winning vocalists and instrumentalists bring the swing era back to life at Cheltenham Town Hall, as the concert orchestra takes its Swing Into Christmas show on tour, showcasing songs from Down for the Count’s album of the same name, together with popular festive numbers such as I've Got You Under My Skin, The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting) and It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas.

Featuring faithful recreations and original arrangements of hits like ‘S Wonderful and Let’s Face The Music and Dance, this swing extravaganza in Gloucestershire deserves to be an annual event in your festive calendar — alongside ice skating, light trails and trips to the Christmas panto.
