Stephen Poliakoff’s first major TV series, Dancing on the Edge, is coming soon to BBC2.

Set in the early 1930’s, the period drama follows black jazz musicians, the Louis Lester Band, as they find fame among London’s upper classes.

The series features amongst its venues, the Grosvenor Suite at the Grand Hotel, Birmingham.

“We are delighted that the Grosvenor Suit was chosen for such an important series” – commented Tony Green, Chief Executive of Hortons, “judging by the clips we have seen it was a perfect choice and is as impressive on film now as it would have been to guests in its heyday”.
