This week we are making the most of having some bar nights (aka: non-event nights) and bracing ourselves for the utter carnage of the next few weeks! We learned a new word this week: "Quafftide", a word that means it is the time (or season) for a drink and we are pleased to announce that we are indeed Quafftide Ready!!!! Last week was another belter with our last Eco Social of 2022 on Wednesday, a Crow debut for The Very Lazy Sundays on Thursday (who, might we add, were fantastic and will hopefully be returning in the new year), plus great gigs from Bad Hombre and Stonegarden on Friday & Saturday night. From next week we have events every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so whilst there is little chance our livers and sanity will survive such mammoth amounts of untamed debauchery, be sure to come down and join us when you can!
We are busy scheduling in shedloads of events for 2023. As the industry (touch wood) is beginning to feel more settled again, we will be able to get our future events listed a couple of months in advance to give you more time to plan and book. We also will be tweaking our website over the next few weeks, ready to relaunch in the new year, hopefully making it easier to see who we are and what we do.
Last month saw the last Hip Hop Lounge of 2022 and we would like to say a huge THANKYOU to April Blue, The Crazy James and all of the performers who stepped up to the mic throughout the year to make The Hip Hop Lounge such a fantastic event. The guys will be returning in 2023, however we have made some changes. It will no longer be taking place the last Friday of each month, instead, we are going to make the most of the amazing talent that has been showcased at this year's event and make The Hip Hop Lounge even bigger! With 4 events scheduled for 2023, The Hip Hop Lounge is going to be absolutely EPIC!!! Details coming soon.
GOOD NEWS: This Friday is BLACK FRIDAY!!!
BAD NEWS: We are not American and therefore are not going to celebrate it!
PS. Fair play to all of you who do manage to grab yourselves a Black Friday bargain, I'm just a crusty old cynic and don't really understand Black Friday or Cyber Monday, Techno Tuesday, W***er Wednesday (I think you get my point)!
Anyway.... We will be offering a free great night out with every beverage (or 5) purchased this weekend - the same as every weekend!!!!
