Some Like It Hot (Cream and two sugars please)

AN AFTERNOON WITH THE FENWICK TERRACE TEA-ROOM ORCHESTRA Thanks to a generous grant from the Heritage Lottery Foundation, and the help of Fenwick Newcastle, we are very happy to announce a lunchtime concert by the Terrace Tea-Room Orchestra, under the direction of Professor Keith Nichols. The concert will take place on Sunday, September 28th in the department store’s third-floor Terrace Restaurant from 12 noon until approximately 2.30pm. The Terrace Tea-Room was a famous musical institution from the end of the First World War until the early 1960’s; as early as 1924, Billy Ternent and the Orchestra were broadcasting from the Terrace on BBC Radio North-East, bringing peppy jazz and hot dance rhythms to those early listeners crouched over their crystal sets. In the thirties, local bandleader Jos Q Atkinson successfully led the Terrace Tea-Rooms Orchestra, though he did say that “Swing” would never catch on with local audiences, making the point that dancing to swing was “more of a wrestling match than proper dancing”! With an eight-piece, all-star band made up of local musicians plus trumpet virtuoso Andy Woon from the south coast, Professor Nichols will magically recreate the sounds of the 1920’s and 1930’s in two-hour concert commencing at 12 noon and concluding at approximately 2.30pm. It is hoped that professional dancers will be on hand to demonstrate the latest transatlantic dance crazes, such as The Charleston, the Tango and the Fox-Trot. All this, plus a sumptuous afternoon tea including dainty sandwiches, fancy cakes and a hot drink, is available for only £10 per person. To reserve a table, telephone Lindsey McKenna on (0191) 232 5100. Once reserved, tickets may be paid for and picked up at the Bureau on the second floor, or you may post a cheque made payable to Fenwick Limited, for the attention of Lindsey McKenna, Marketing & Creative, Fenwick, Northumberland Street, Newcastle NE99 1AR. Do come along and help us celebrate this memory of the Dancing Decades on Tyneside! Mike Durham Director, Jazz @ The Exchange & Whitley Bay International Jazz Festival
