'The ultimate professionals' 


After an unforgettable sell-out night a few summers ago, we're super-excited to have been invited back by The National Trust to this unique venue. Set against the backdrop of Scotney's mansion house, enjoy a summer evening with us: bring a picnic, grab your drinks from the mobile bar, and dance the night away under the stars.

The perfect summer event for a group of friends or family.

An evening with The Swinging Little Big Band, live at National Trust Scotney Castle: 19th August




The Swinging Little Big Band the most unique swing function band in the UK. Since 2004, we've delighted thousands of audiences across the UK and Europe with our Our 'Rat Pack Reloaded!' show, blending swing-era classics with Vegas-style versions of contemporary songs alongside unique swing, latin and jump-jive versions of modern rock and pop songs. But what really gets people talking is our remarkable mash-ups: think Dave Brubeck vs Oasis, Duke Ellington vs The Strokes; even Nina Simone gets shaken up with The Sex Pistols.  Like scotch-on-the-rocks for your ears, The Swinging Little Big Band brings the stuff that made the Rat Pack legendary: effortless cool, sublime musicianship, and a sense of fun that makes every audience feel part of the gang.
