Q. How much will my tickets cost and how can I pay.

A: The price of your ticket is show against the listings on the left hand side of this page (Opens new window) but are typically £12- £15. You can ONLY pay in cash on entering the room. You cannot pre-pay, nor can you pay for "friends coming later" as you enter (as we will have no idea who they are!). The bar accept CASH ONLY for sales up to £10 but if you spend over £10 you can probably pay using a card but you cannot get "Cash back" against it. There is NO ATM (Cash machine) at the venue.

Q What is the age limit for young persons coming in to the club?

A: There isn't one! Realistically children under 10 might get bored and certainly a crying baby would not add to the evenings entertainment, but as long as children are well behaved, do not run between the bars and do not try to purchase alcohol then they are welcome. Please note that usually a charge is made.
