## The event runs 8pm – 3am both nights.
## THE EVENT IS SPLIT OVER 2 ROOMS: First half of the night (8pm – 11pm) will be in Room 1 (head to the back of the venue). Second half (11pm – 3am) is in the main room downstairs. Wristbands will be provided for smooth transition!
## It’s 18+ due to there being a bar (sorry to under-18s).
## There’s an OPEN MIC hour from 8pm – 9pm both nights! Slots are limited to 2 songs / 7 minutes (whichever comes first) and a jack lead is provided. Chip musicians, bring your gear down & shake things up. No advance register, so get down early & stake your claim!
## Entry is £5 per night, pay on the door only, no tickets.
