Free Entry. 7pm – 3 am) on Friday 7 February for a night of all things dance floor. “This pleases us very much indeed, primarily because of the anything-goes music policy that sees anything from classic techno, punk-funk, galactic house, deep down and dirty disco and other dancefloor dynamite do the rounds.” (Time Out)
