We are really excited to announce a celebration of swings! Swings are often the unsung heroes of the West End, jumping in at short notice and performing multiple different tracks to ensure a show goes on. But their work sometimes goes un-noticed. Well, no more! We are launching a weekly celebration with our ‘Swing of the Week’.

Alongside our good friend Christopher Parkinson, we will be celebrating the work of swings, covers, understudies and alternates. Chris recently released a viral video called “Life of A Swing” and is currently appearing as swing in the hit show & Juliet.

Here’s Chris to tell you a bit more:

You will be able to show your support for the swings in the West End and on tour by nominating them as Swing of the Week on our social media platforms. And as we want to champion as many performers as possible, the nominations will also be open for understudies, covers, alternates and standbys.

We will announce our Swing of the Week every Wednesday and their name will remain on the chair for you to get a photo with to show them your love.
