Swingamajig – A Show Like No Other!
On 8th May 2020, Swingamajig will return to the stunning Birmingham Botanical Gardens for a vintage festival that is truly like no other! Curated by the Electric Swing Circus, Swingamajig is a vintage wonderland of music, performance and delight, and probably the most fun you will have this May!
5 Stages/venues with everything from big brass bands to electro beats, burlesque to rock n roll, dance classes to disco. Swingamajig has something for everything and by day is suitable for all ages too. 2020 is our 8th edition and we are adding two tented stages within the picturesque grounds of the Botanical Gardens, bringing you more live bands DJs than we have had before!
The Swingamajig Stage/Bandstand – our main stages showcasing the big bands and shows of Swingamajig 2020
The Cabaret Stage – Birmingham’s best cabaret line up, with a full program of dance, circus, magic burlesque and much more….
The Swingamajig Speakeasy – new for 2020, our second stage will host intimate performances from some of the best live bands on the touring circuit
The Botanical Dance Hall – Swing dance classes by day and then bands and more dancing by night
The Disco Sheds – New for 2020 with DJs serving up a tasty blend of electro swing, disco, funky breaks, global beats and more all day.
Stay tuned for the full line up coming soon
New for 2020 our food court will be twice the size and Vintage Market three times bigger! There will be a wide range of delicious, locally and ethically sourced food for you to choose from – eating at Swingamajig will be a delight! The Vintage Market will have everything from vintage hairstyling to games, authentic vintage clothes to strange curios, dressing up accessories and everything in between.
There is so much going on but what really makes Swingamajig special is the atmosphere. We play 100 years a year all over the world as Electric Swing Circus, but we are yet to find a crowd as friendly and fun as you will find at Swingamajig. Whether you are 18 or 80 you will find yourself surrounded by wonderful like-minded people and we hope to see you at this year’s festival!
The Swingamajig Botanical Ball will take place from 2 pm – 11 pm, followed by an official After Party – Swingamajig After Dark, back in the city, running until 5 am (details to follow). Dress to impress in your best vintage finery and swing into spring.
