Polka Dots Trioaccordian title

Celebrating the best of vintage music; from toe-tapping Swing and jumping Jive favourites, to some more modern hits with a cheeky retro twist, the Polka Dots Trio have been performing together since 2009, both across the UK and abroad, and are regulars here at our Hampton Court Palace Food Festivals. With their seamless close part harmonies, high-energy dance routines, and plenty of audience interaction (especially for our little guests!), they will keep you entertained on the East Front Gardens; whether you choose to take the weight off your feet and recline in one of our comfy deckchairs, or work up an appetite for your next artisan treat with a boogie!
