Swing Eire

“We ran a Swing Dancing event with St Peter’s in November 2016. The event ran seamlessly from start to finish, thanks to all the care and attention from Eileen at the venue. Booking was easy, and answers to any questions were just an email away. On the night, the team at St Peter’s was helpful, welcoming and professional. We can’t wait to run another event in this special venue.”
