Nutty NYE Ball

Come and celebrate the New Year in style at our Nutty New Year Ball with 3 rooms of magical music.


In the beat basement the most exciting CAT BLACK will conduct midnight mass celebrations with their wild live show. Think Rolling Stones, MC5 and The Stooges all rolled into one.

If you like the earlier sounds of the mid-sixties the BARON FOUR will have you shakin’ your stuff in no time. After the bands DJ’s until 6am playing Freakbeat, Garage & Psych 45’s.


If the sound of Motown and Northern Soul is more your thing, then why not get on our huge wooden dance floor in the main ballroom. 

However if the fifties to mid-sixties is more your bag then try to find room 3 where Rhythm & Blues Jazz and Ska is on the menu.


Advance tickets are on sale now saving you £5 here
