A great night of dancing, live music and more is set for Saturday October 12th, at Knighton Community Centre, when Stack4 Sounds will be presenting a rescheduled event billed as “Electro Swing Vibe”. Aberystwyth-based gypsy jazz and swing band Chocolat will be playing live and burlesque dancer Oh! Carolina will be bringing to the evening what has been described as her “bohemian carny glamour”! In addition a line up of top DJs and VJs will be providing Electro Swing sounds, a musical genre fusing music from the Twenties to the Fifties with electronic dance music influences that is building a huge following across the country.
It’s hoped that the evening will include lessons in the right swing, jive and lindy-hop dance moves for the uninitiated, though if you’re not feeling energetic there should be plenty to keep the audience entertained.
It’s hoped that the audience will get in the vintage mood by coming along in 1920s to 50s attire to add to the swing-era mood and as well as a bar to 1.30am, home-made cakes are also promised!
The evening kicks off at 6.30 and finishes at 1.30am and is strictly for over-18s. Tickets are £10 in advance from Tower House Gallery and the Music Centre, Knighton, with online promotional ticket offers available at www.stack4.co.uk. Phone 01686 440717 or visit the stack4 website for more information.
Passers-by have stopped and asked the question in the last week: what's going on? Well, now it can be told. Volunteer Scott Hill has decided that what's needed on that vast expanse of wall at the front of the centre is a nice big sign advertising the building to all those who still ask "Where's the Community Centre". Local paint supplier Precious Earth was kind enough to help out with supplying the paint (though they probably didn't realise just how much would be required...).
In a week of painting, often in rain and long into the fading evening light, Scott has established the eye-catching scroll shape you see above. Now he just has to add the words "Knighton Community Centre" in metre-high letters! No problem...
The Hollywood sign is about to be faced with a serious rival.

We've been meeting in recent months with the good people behind the "Llani Kitchens" project, which aims to put in touch with each other venues which have certified kitchens for rent and local and aspiring food producers who need such facilities. It sounds like a great idea, and one which we'd like to see working in Knighton.
The project is launching this week so for more details go to www.llanikitchens.co.uk or see the flyer reproduced below.
