In light of the current situation, and estimated end date for the government shutdown for COVID-19, we’re sad to announce that we’ve taken the decision to cancel Oxford Lindy Exchange 2020.  Cancelling is the responsible thing to do for the safety of our community.

Fortunately we will be able to offer all of our attendees a full refund for the event  so if  you have already bought tickets, you don’t need to do anything, this will be issued through DanceCloud (the booking platform you signed up with). Just bear with us whilst our committee process all of these as soon as possible.

Sadly we will be missing out on music from the wonderful Jack Calloway Dance Orchestra, Jim Wynn Swing Orchestra, and Palace Avenue Swing this year but we hope to welcome them all to Oxford for the rearranged event in 2021.

In the meantime we have confirmed dates for next year with the Oxford Union so we won’t miss out on celebrating the 10th OLX with us. OLX 10 will now take place on 25th – 27th June 2021!

Hope you are all staying happy and healthy, and look forward to seeing you on a dance floor in the not too distant future! And of course if you have any further questions send them on over to oxfordlindyhoppers@gmail.com
