Cornerstone will be hosting the Chairman of South Oxfordshire District Council, Cllr Paul Harrison’s annual concert in aid of his three charities: the British Heart Foundation, British Liver Trust and Mission Aviation Fellowship.

The concert will feature Radio Days, a sixteen piece Big Band playing swing music from the 1930s to the 1960s. The band’s repertoire reflects the work of the great composers and arrangers of the swing era, with names such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Arte Shaw and Glenn Miller being represented.

The Radio Days Big Band is based in Abingdon. Formed in 1998 by their Musical Director Joe Carey, the band have performed at public events and private functions including weddings, Oxford college balls, corporate events, parties, festivals and themed events all over England.

Let Radio Days take you back to the golden era of the big band dance orchestra and Hollywood at Cornerstone on Saturday 21 January at 7:30pm. Join us for a Jive, Jitterbug, Lindy, Quickstep or perhaps even an American Smooth... and raise money for some amazing charities at the same time! This event is set to be a cracking evening of big band swing classics!

Prices: £15, concessions £13.50 and members £12. Click here to book.
