Dance Hall to Return with Sound Clash Event

October will welcome live music and the re-opening of our sprung dancefloor.

17 September 2021 PRESS RELEASE

Although world events shut down in March 2020, the sprung dancefloor at Sutton Coldfield Town Hall, one of the largest in Birmingham, has not stood completely idle. Used for a dance school last Autumn and then featured in the filming of a major new release for cinemas, it was covered with carpet to protect it from heavy footfall during the first phase of NHS Covid-19 vaccinations in 2021.

It is set to be uncovered for the welcome return of dancing at the Town Hall in October. On Friday 8th October, the Town Hall welcomes the 6th ‘Sound Clash’ event, a highly successful series of dance events which alternate two styles of music. This time visitors will see the return of 7 piece band The Interpreters, playing two sets of adrenaline-fuelled classic ska and 2-Tone covers, plus uniquely blended sets from Northern Soul DJ Sean Taylor.

Although The Interpreters have played and sold out this event before, this promises to be their best yet as they are joined by local ska legend Tony Beet. In 1989, Tony became vocalist for The International Beat with former members of 2 Tone legends The Beat, going on to be part of the huge international ska revival in the early 90s which included an audience of 100,000 at The Earth Day Festival in USA.

To provide a safe space to dance, tickets for this event are strictly limited and will sell out, so early booking is advised at £10 advance from the Town Hall’s website The Sir Doug Ellis bar will be open from 7pm with music from 8pm.

The following evening, Saturday 9th October, Ultimate Coldplay bring a festival feel to the Town Hall, plus an Indie After Show Party to keep the dancing going after the concert. Final tickets available from the Town Hall for £14.
