HUNDREDS of revellers are recovering from a serious bout of Saturday Night Fever following a disco-tastic show by the BSO last night.

Under the baton of the ever-enthusiastic Pete Harrison who donned a shiny, sequinned jacket especially for the occasion, the world class Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra took the audience on a nostalgic trip back to the sounds of the 70s with help from top West End singers.

Bournemouth Echo:

Although people arrived armed with plastic ponchos and brollies, the night stayed dry as Meyrick Park was transformed into a boogie wonderland as many more dressed up for the event than in previous years sporting platform shoes, wide lapels and big hair, as did some members of the orchestra.

Kicking off with a short overture followed by Disco Inferno we were treated to all our favourite disco classics by the Bee Gees, Earth Wind and Fire, Boney M, Sister Sledge, Donna Summer and Kool and the Gang to name a few.

All that as well as hit songs I Will Survive, Three Times a Lady, Boogie Nights and Don’t Take Away the Music had everyone up on their feet and dancing by the end of the night.

Bournemouth Echo:

This year's big finish featured a specially curated soundtrack accompanied by stunning fireworks, pyrotechnics and flames, lasers, lights and other special effects.

All in all an evening of unadulterated fun and nostalgia. We haven't stopped dancing yet!
