We kick off the New Year at The Rivoli on January 17th with the weclome return of the Ding Dong Daddios. This talented bunch of jumpin’ n jivin’ musicians bring you the most danceable tunes from the swing heydays of the ’40s and ’50s.

Get ready to take a Choo Choo Ch’Boogie runaway train ride from Five Guys Named Mo all the way to Mac the Knife, passing through Istanbul (not Constantinople) on the way. Check them out for yourselves at

As usual there will be a Jive lesson for beginners to kick off the evening, then you can practice your dance skills on one of the best sprung maple dance floors in the country at one of the most iconic and atmospheric venues in Britain.


The BBC will be filming at the Jive Party at the Rivoli Ballroom on January the 17th as part of a brand new BBC ONE series for Comic Relief which will be broadcast in 2015. Should you decide to attend this event, you give consent to be filmed for this show.
