80s club night

Relive your glory days with the best sounds of the 1980s!

We have exclusive use of the Common Rooms club in Bath between 8pm and 11pm, and for those that are still able to party like it's 1989, you can do your thing until 3am!

This is NOT fancy dress. But I'll buy a drink for any* guy who wears a buttoned-up shirt without a tie and a pastel- coloured jacket with the sleeves rolled up. Or a ra-ra skirt if you're female (or male, come to that).

*maximum 5

    Super night. I had a really good boogie, and a good excuse to wear a wig! Thanks Richard.

      Hi Shehana, the wig was fun (-:

    Fantastic night, really enjoyed it. Thanks Richard. A 70s night sounds like a great idea! :)

    March 9, 2013

  • Richard

    Thanks to everyone for the card. I am genuinely touched by it. And Chris's photoshopping is just incredible -maybe it's not too late for a Limahl cut! I'll see what my barber can do!

    It's so gratifying to be able to create an experience that's embraced by people. Everyone has different memories of those songs, but fundamentally they are just terrific songs, and I'm so pleased that everyone had the opportunity to dance to them again. And it was great to meet so many new people.

    Yes, we could have done with a larger dancefloor. And Saturday night would I think be preferable to Friday. And I would like a longer time devoted exclusively to our music. These lessons I will take forward to the next event -70s disco!

    Thanks to everyone for coming and getting down. Now I'm off to the Jazz Cafe for a fry-up.

      I think I can answer that question very definitely Nicola - we are human!

  • Peter

    Richard, thanks for organising a really great evening! Loved all the fancy dress and the music and the dancing. A 70's night will be groovy - now where did I leave my kaftan?

    March 9, 2013

  • deb s.

    Thanks Richard, it was a great night with lots of joy and meeting with new people was just amazing! Can't wait 70's though... Can I find a shirt for that also? :)

  • Tim H.

    Hi Claire, how much money did you raise for the worthy course?

    March 9, 2013

  • Tim H.

    Hi Richard, A 70's night would be good with great Music from Motown etc. If practical a larger dance floor and the event on a Saturday. Knackered by Friday

  • Jose

    Hello, I am going on my own!! Bit scared!! Anybody else in the same situation ?

    March 8, 2013

    • Richard

      Hello Jose, there's nothing to worry about. Every person in this group was initially in the situation of knowing noone else. Probably two thirds of the people going tonight I haven't met either. It's all very relaxed and friendly.

      March 8, 2013

    • Barrie W.

      There are lots of other newcomers but everyone's very friendly so just come along and introduce yourself.

    March 8, 2013

  • Anna

    Oh I can't miss this, and Richard I don't know what a ra-ra skirt is but 80s dress is a must

    March 8, 2013

  • Mark T

    Anyone fancy meeting for a snakebite beforehand? :-)

    March 7, 2013

    • Ruth

      Wheres the grappa bar?

      1 · March 8, 2013

    • Louisa

      Hi, if I'm running early I'll meet you in Grappa, it's en route for me.

      March 8, 2013

  • Nicola B

    How about meeting at Grappa Bar on Lansdown Hill tomorrow? I think it's just around the corner and it's a great place for drinks and food.

    March 7, 2013

    • Ruth

    Snakebite and black, oh yes. Should be a pub though, can't imagine sipping a pint of that wicked stuff in a nice bar! Let me know where you end up and a rough time.

    Two places for the waitlist. Old injury forces retirement. Enjoy :)

    March 7, 2013

  • Tim H.

    In the Las Vagas of the North, Blackpool, can somebody explain to me why we sat on a beer drenched dance floor and shuffle our bums along, no quiet horizontal conga to some tune. To be followed up by Sit Down by James

    March 7, 2013

  • Richard

    Just to let everyone know not to be shy of asking the DJ for requests. If he's not playing what you want to hear, let him know. I've given him 11 hours of 80s hits, and he has an equal number.

    March 7, 2013

  • claire

    oops upside your head, sitting on the beer drenched floor :) or was that only in Stoke?

    March 6, 2013

    • Margaret

      No definitely all over. Memories of Ios, Ipsos .... But you had to have your white jeans on at the time :}

      March 6, 2013

    • Elsa

      My sister sat on a bit of broken glass doing that one - some things are definitely best left in the past!

      March 7, 2013

    The only way (up the ladder!) is up :)

    March 6, 2013

    • Tim H.

      Who is going to do the Yazz impression The Only Way is up?

      March 6, 2013

    • claire

      me I used to look like her. My hair was that short for the longest time

      March 6, 2013

  • Nicola B

    Can we go for some Guilty Pleasures 80s too, not just cool 80s, as in Heaven 17, Dr Hook (!), The Go Gos, things like It Started With A Kiss, Locomotion, Turning Japanese etc etc?!

    March 6, 2013

    • Tim H.

      At least with the 80's we escape Bryan Adam Everything I do - Robin Hood

      March 6, 2013

      can't stand that one Chris! No slow ones. Period!
