The sale of food tickets for Loughborough’s finest jazz night of the year have been extended until midnight on Monday 14th May! “What culinary delights does the extra £5.50 provide?” I hear you say. Well, a food ticket gives you unlimited access to a delicious buffet comprised of the following:

• 3 assorted finger rolls per person, filled with a selection of meat, fish and vegetarian fillings.
• Tandoori chicken skewer with minted yoghurt.
• Wedges of spinach, tomato and feta quiche. (v)
• Spiced chorizo sausage roll.
• Italian meat platter with mini breads.
• Onion bahjis with mango chutney. (v)

If this isn’t enough to get you to Loughborough Town Hall on Saturday the 26th of May, then take a look at this footage of one of our alumni singers, Jess, belting ‘Diamonds’ to almost 1000 AU athletes back in 2017, for a spoiler of what is to come!

To avoid disappointment for what is set to be an incredible night of entertainment, book your tickets through now!

Hi Guys!
Tuxedo Swing, Loughborough’s finest student swing band, will be holding auditions for singers the evenings of October 12th and 13th.
I have been playing with Tuxedo Swing for 3 years now and can honestly say it has been the highlight of my time here in Loughborough. The semi-professional band consists of around 30 talented and enthusiastic musicians who work hard to perfect the bands unique and highly sought after sound. With gig opportunities arising nearly every weekend, it is a great way to escape the Loughborough bubble and experience performing in some beautiful and often very different venues! (A medieval castle and a fort in the middle of the ocean are just to name a few). I can’t stress enough how much of a fantastic opportunity this is for students and would encourage any of you who think you have a set of pipes to come and audition!
Please choose one song from group A and one song from group B in the link below (two songs for the audition) and submit your details for the auditions… YOU WON'T REGRET IT!
