FREE LIVE POP/ INDIE/ROCK MUSIC + DJ+DANCING/DRINKS @ THE SWAN Stockwell

  • May 10, 2014 · 9:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come and join me in one of my favourite places for a fun Saturday night out.

The Swan in Stockwell is a relaxed/fun and unpretentious pub/club directly opposite Stockwell underground station so you cannot miss it!

Live band downstairs and they usually play an eclectic  mix of  commercial Pop/Indie/Rock music.  The band starts around 10.30ish onwards.

DJ will play before, inbetween and after the live band.  DJ will play similar type of music as the live band plus the odd irish thrown in if he fancies it. He does take some requests as well.

 

Upstairs when open tends to throw in more dance type music.

The Swan tends to get very busy from 12.30pam but there's  usually enough space to stand and watch if you want to and to dance if you want to!..or you can sit and drink...something for everyone!

Entrance is free before 11pm.

The Plan:

Meet at 9.30pm for drinks and socialising, then start dancing whenever you feel like it!

Try and bring some ID as the bouncers sometimes ask for it at the entrance.

Entrance  is free

Cloakroom for bags are also free ( great for us girls)  but jackets/coats etc are £1 per item.

Dresscode: As you like!

The Swan closes at around 5.30am!!!!

Hopefully, a few of you will stay with me to the end of the night but don't worry, I won't hold it against you if you leave earlier!

Stockwell is on Northernline/Victoria line.

For your safety, there are Swan taxis directly outside The Swan or if you prefere buses like N155 towards Morden/Trafalgar Square.  N2 towards Victoria.  88 towards Camden.

Looking forward to seeing you all there for a good ole craic!

      Susan, it was Shatner via several episodes of Star Trek that helped me recharge my batteries on Sunday after the all-nighter at the Swan! As for the Roller Disco - sounds great but am afraid I can't skate at all so will count myself out! Don't know if any members are going, but thanks for the invite and hope you have a blast.

    RSVPs for this event are now CLOSED - so if you're not already on the RSVP list then please don't msg asking for a place.

    May 10

  • Shereena

    Should your plans have changed please remember to change your RSVP, so Rachel knows who & how many to expect. Thx.
    Do try to be there on time so you can spot Rachel & the group; it'll get busier later & you may then find it difficult to find us.

    Due to high demand, I have decided to increase the numbers by adding everyone who are on the waitting list! I hope you can all still make it.

    Looking forward to seeing you all tonight and please do remember to bring some form of ID in case the bouncers ask you for it.

    May 10

  • Shereena

    It's great that so many of you are planning to come, however, if for any reason your plans have changed then please remember to change your RSVP ASAP - there are many ppl on the waiting list - so please don't keep a spot if you aren't going to make it. Thx.

    May have gone on a Friday, which is a similar night, but Sats are too busy there for me. Sorry. xx

    April 23

    • Rachel

      You are right Sheila that Saturday nights are very busy but usually only after 12.30. Hence the reason why we are meeting at 9.30, which will enable us to mark our territory and own the space! (some of the space)
