What we're about

There are a lot of different parties/club events and things to do out there apart from the normal pubs and clubs and this group will take you there. Weekends we often do clubby nights with a festival or kinky ethos - music tends to be electro/electroswing/drum n bass/techno, weeknights will have everything from spoken word to musical bingo to hip hop karaoke.

Almost every meetup will start with a few drinks somewhere so we can congregate and get to know each other before moving on to the venue.

Suggestions welcome... but please make sure they fit with the ethos of the group. If an event wouldn't make someone go 'oh, that's different/weird/how the hell did they come up with that one?' then it's probably not for this group.

Please do join the facebook group to share event suggestions too: https://www.facebook.com/groups/797845880393510/

A lot of the places we've been I have blogged about already here (and have a list of places we've been/will go to under Clubbing and Things to Do):

http://ginglelistseverything.blogspot.co.uk (http://ginglelistseverything.blogspot.co.uk/) or also my most recent blog: www.ginglelistseverything.co.uk

I ask members to contribute £3.00 to the running of this group. Besides the time and effort involved, I'm charged £200 by Meetup EACH YEAR to run the group so any help is appreciated. paypal.me/JaminaWard (https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/my/profile)

Bjork Vulnicura at Otherworld

OTHERWORLD

This sounds like an interesting take on VR... Come closer than ever to Björk as she takes you on an multi-sensory journey. Step inside your private immersion room and travel a twisting trail of immersive and intimate virtual reality experiences. For the first time, Björk Vulnicura VR brings together all the visually re-imagined tracks from the 2015 album in a curated and expanded way, as one VR experience - being shown exclusively at OTHERWORLD. Interactive scores are also completely new additions, and the entire audio has been re-worked and presented in a specially created world built from LiDAR scans of the Icelandic landscape. https://other.world/landing/bjork-vulnicura-vr/

Fox and Badge Beautiful and Damned

The Steel Yard Nightclub

Tickets for this are sold out, but there are normally a few floating about closer to the time. Keep an eye on the FB page and join the waitlist. They say: Fox&Badge cordially invite you to step back a century to a night of beauty, optimism - and damnation; an intercontinental journey back to the 1920’s, experiencing the elegance of New York and Parisian cafe society, and the avant-garde, debauch seductions of Berlin. BUY TICKETS: https://www.tickettailor.com/events/foxandbadge/285497 (waitlist at http://bit.ly/FandBBandDwaitlist - please use this to both buy & sell; please refrain from spamming this wall) Come join us at the elegant, tenebrous Steel Yard to explore an immersive, sensual update on The Golden Age - a whirlwind tour of a world of arts & Art-Deco, ballrooms and Burlesque, Cabaret & cross-dressing, Swing and Speakeasys, passwords and prohibition, Techno & twistedness. After the Great War, the ‘20s Roared and Swung - ushering in a Golden Age of Radio and Cinema, Art & Architecture. Culture blossomed; the avant-garde thrived; Expressionism and Experimentalism were everywhere. It heralded a revolution across both Europe and America as dresses and hairstyles shortened; nights lengthened; attitudes loosened; culture liberated - and new attitudes to gender and sexuality flourished. Freed from an authoritarianism, the late Weimar era merged liberal ideas, with new forms of expression - and hedonism. Berlin became a hotbed of homosexuality, a mecca for cross dressers and transsexuals, and hosted the world’s first ever male-to-female surgery. The zeitgeist was fast-paced, wild, thrilling, disruptive and deeply formative; it gave birth to the modern world we know today - and to the world we have not yet become. **We offer for your pleasure:** -7 amazing DJs, including some extraordinary international headliners + our signature all-female main-room lineup; -2 complementary dance-floors combining stunning melodic techno, downtempo, ambient and live music (including a vintage piano bar) -an army of spectacular, immersive, wildly-varied performers; -spectacular sound and light, with our most ambitious sets yet; -a stash of decadent and joyful surprises; -our incredible community, brilliantly and creatively dressed, taking costumes and interactions to another level. Doors open at 10pm and close at 1am. The mayhem runs til 6am, followed by an official afterparty (tickets only for main event holders). **Strict Dress Code: Roaring Twenties / Beautiful and Damned** Fantastic Flappers, Beaded Ballgowns, Tails and Tuxes (especially for women) and Teutonic Twists; Costume Cabaret, Pearl Harnesses, Pinstriped Gangsters, Fantastic Furs; Bouncy Bobbed Hair, Cloches and Clutches, Feather Headbands and Ostrich enwrapments; Expressionists, Amorous Artists & Avant-Gardists; Gorgeous Gloves, Fringes and Fans, Boas and Feathers, Bold Bauhaus Looks & Berliner Fetishists; Liberal Lashings of Damned Debauchery. https://www.facebook.com/events/2404972443151554/
