THE AIM will be to get those jingle bells swinging, when the Five Star Swing Band comes to the Roses Theatre in Tewkesbury.

Local people are being promised the favourite Christmas songs delivered with "the dynamic Big Band treatment".

On offer will be tunes from Glenn Miller, Sinatra, Basie and Nat King Cole.

The line up will feature Simone from the Ivy Benson Orchestra; Chris Smith (Jnr), the composer and arranger for the BBC Radio Big Band and the Herb Miller Big Band, plus Tony Bennett’s trombonist.

The date for the diary is Thursday, December 8.
