Bristol Swing Fiesta: 11-13 August 2023

Steve, Kate & their dream team welcome you to a West Coast Swing weekend this summer in beautiful Clifton, Bristol.

We are offering 3 days of:

This is a WSDC Trial Event. This means we will be running the event following WSDC rules but no points will be awarded for J&J competitions for the trial year.

The weekend coincides with Bristol's famous 4 day festival of hot air ballooning. Our weekend schedule will give you time to hopefully see the afternoon mass ascent of hot air balloons, which happens around 6pm each day. When weather conditions are good, it's a spectacular sight!
