We've had a few weeks between us and the end of the academic year 2022/23 so now it's time to reflect.
This year for Tuxedo swing has been another great one.
Saying hello to lots of new faces and unfortunately goodbye to a few old ones.
Carried the tradition of a spectacular UJ and plenty of other great gigs.
And enjoying some awesome socials all together.
We hope everyone has a jazzy summer and we'll see you back next year!
Tux Love 🎶
