AWARD WINNERS!

Awarded Warwickshire's 'Best Family-Friendly Celebration of Music and Culture', the number one family jive & swing vintage festival Swingtime in the Gardens returns after a fabulous 2019 event. We are delighted to announce that we will be returning to the beautiful estate of Ragley Hall on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th June 2020. This year's festival will see a stellar line up of over 15 bands across two stages bringing the best in Vintage Jive & Swing music.

THE FESTIVAL:

Swingtime in the Gardens caters to all age groups with something for everyone! Responding to the very positive feedback from this year's festival, we're extending the event over the weekend and offering camping so that everyone can make the most of the fantastic entertainment on offer. We're keen to give children the chance of gaining some valuable experience so they can take part in singing and dancing workshops and even perform on the main stage!

We have kids entertainment, a wide selection of high-quality food vendors, vintage trade stalls, and several bars for your enjoyment! The festival offers a rare opportunity for families to escape together and enjoy this wonderful music from the past.

Line-ups will be finalised over the next two months with The Magic of Miller and Britain's Got Talent semi-finalists The Jive Aces among the acts to appear.

Swingtime in the Gardens 2020 will help raise money for our charities: Acorn's Children's Hospice and The Not Forgotten Association.  The festival will conclude early on the Sunday evening with a special Sunset Ceremony which will see The Band of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers and local Cadets emulating the flag lowering and bugle calls performed at British military bases across the world.

Ragley Hall and Gardens will be open for festival goers to visit and those who want to bring their vintage cars along are more than welcome!

Antonio began his career with his professional show debut in Hello Dolly with Dora Bryan at Birmingham Hippodrome aged just 5. 

Whilst a keen singer and dancer, his real passion came when he was given an old battered trumpet to play, soon tooting away at school and in his father's ballroom dance band Tony & The Sapphires with every opportunity that arose.  Performing with various bands, credits include BBC Songs of Praise, The Big Breakfast and tours of Europe with The Bevin Boys, Rosemary Ashe and The Jive Aces. 

On a trip to New York, Antonio first heard the sound of Louis Prima, Keely Smith and his band, The Witnesses and knew instantly that was the sound he wanted to create. 

Now with his debut album French Poodle released, Antonio and his jive swing band can be found jumping on tables and performing throughout the UK.

Antonio studied Jazz at the Birmingham Conservatoire and is currently Bandmaster of The Band of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, Warwickshire, conducting them at engagements all over the Midlands.  He has also been guest conductor for West Midlands Police Brass Band and often performs as a Bugler at the National Memorial Arboretum, Staffordshire.

Whilst a keen performer, Antonio's business background started as Restuarant Manager for Outback Steakhouse and with his natuaral flair moved into Marketing & Promotions, becoming a casino marketing manager at Broadway Casino, Birmingham.  Working in the industry in the Midlands for over 10 years, looking after VIPs and casinos marketing strategy enabled Antonio to build a wealth of knowledge and experience in putting large events together.  

Through his experience, in 2015 Antonio was invited by Broadway Casino's owner to head up a new business, Semilac UK as Managing Director and over the next two years achieved 9% month on month growth. 

Through his agency Sapphire Entertainments, Antonio has engaged artists for hundreds of events each year and continues to provide live acts for corporate functions throughout the Midlands.

Swingtime in the Gardens held a one-off event in 2013 at Birmingham's Botanical Gardens for over 1,200 visitors to great success.  Now with a first successful and award-winning year completed at Ragley Hall, Antonio is passionate about building up Swingtime in the Gardens to reach new audiences with this fantastic music.

In particular, he is determined to encourage children and young people to engage in the Arts from as early an age as possible.  As studies consistently show, children who are engaged in the arts and in this case music and dance, go on to display more powerful structural and functional brain changes, enhancing verbal memory, special reasoning and literacy skills.
