Lee & Fabienne Easton have been the organisers of MSO since the concept of the event which came from Paul Harris who now resides in the USA.  2008 at the Northampton Hilton Hotel was the launch of Midland Swing Open. 2011 we moved to Birmingham, to Manchester for a year and now held in Slough, 15 minutes from Heathrow airport,  Our ambition for MSO continues to be, to bring the highest standard of International WCS competitions to the UK.

The music, the dancers, you’ll be inspired by what you see and hear. Inspired so much you’ll want to dance all night!!
