Spalding Rock ‘n’ Roll Weekender

The hottest rock and roll acts from across the country will set Springfields hopping at a red-hot rock and roll weekender.

This weekend (May 12 and 13), the Hot Rock n Boogie Weekender welcomes 13 bands and three DJs for two days of jiving and dancing at Springfields Events Centre.

The weekender is run by dance tutors Boston Jive, who have set Lincolnshire bopping for almost two years with their lessons and events across the region.

Now they are pooling the best acts in the country for a celebration of all things rockin’.

Between bands, DJs Miss Aloha, Mr Big Feet and Revered Boogie will keep the tempo up.

As well as music, there will also be free-to-use vintage fairground rides (including swingboats, children’s carousels and test your strength machines), classic cars, a vintage market and a stylist available to take haircuts back in time with a vintage style.

Saturday starts at 10am and runs into midnight.

Sunday also starts at 10am and wraps up at 11pm.

Wristbands will be issued so people are free to come and go as they please.
