  • Swing Patrol Wimbledon


    Our classes run every Monday. There is a beginners class at 7:15pm and a Level 2 class from 8:45pm with social dancing in between, in the beautiful Hillside Hall taught by the wonderful Ieva and James.

    7:15-8:15pm: Level 1 – Beginner swing dance class
    Our beginners class always assumes no prior knowledge, so absolute beginners are welcome to join us any week. There’s no need to book in advance or bring a partner. Just arrive ready for some fun!

    8:30-9:30pm: Level 2 – Intermediate class
    When you start feeling confident in Level 1 – this is the class for you! You have probably been to your first social dance by now and will have made it all the way through at least one whole song. As well as looking at fancy moves there will be styling, variations and plenty of tips to help you lead, follow and really dance to the music. Ideally you will have done at least one 10 week beginner cycle and covered all the footwork patterns that we teach at Level 1 (Lindy hop with kicks or triple steps and 1930s Charleston).

    Taking more than one class on the same evening? Your second class is half price — just £5!

    Richmond Film Society – screening of ‘Glory' (Bulgaria)

    When Tzanko, a shy, reclusive state-railroad worker, finds a substantial amount of cash on the tracks and hands it in, Julia, a cynical PR executive, sees an opportunity to turn his good deed into a distraction from a corruption scandal involving the Minister of Transport. After Tzanko is presented with a cheap digital watch as a reward at a set piece media event, Julia removes his  wristwatch (a family heirloom) and proceeds to lose it. His quest to recover it turns into a bureaucratic nightmare and sets in train an escalating sequence of events which mines urban-rural, generational and class divisions. 

    Shot and edited in a naturalistic, documentary-like style reminiscent of the the Dardenne brothers and the Romanian ‘New Wave’, the result is a tense and, at times, darkly comedic fable of political and media corruption in contemporary Bulgaria.

    Members go free. Non-member tickets are £5 (full-time students £3) and can be purchased in advance from The Exchange’s Box Office (in person or by telephone on 020 8240 2399) or online at Tickets are also available on the night (cash only).
