Monday 26 September: Beach Party @ Scala

The heatwave might be over, but we're making summer last just a little longer with a huge beach party at one of London's biggest and best night spots, Scala in Kings Cross. This is also the venue for our iconic Sports Night, so if you're planning on joining a sports team, you'll want to know your way around all three rooms. 

We're going for a beach vibe decor with a bunch of pool inflatables, so feel free to accessorise accordingly - this is the ultimate photo opp. Expect non-stop summer anthems all night long from our special guest DJ!

Wednesday 28 September OR Wednesday 5 October: Social Bingo @ Dabbers

For the first time ever, we're taking over Dabbers Bingo in the city on two separate dates. Once you've purchased your wristband, you can pick a night to attend. Simples.

Not just for nanas, Dabbers is bingo with a party twist - you're in for a night of big laughs, a high energy atmosphere, plenty of fabulous prizes, music and, if you choose so, a bottomless hour of punch cocktails. Warning - it might well become your new favourite night out. 


Thursday 29 September: UV Glow @ Egg

This year we're once again returning to one of the capital's biggest warehouse clubs - EGG! Not since 2019 have we taken over this 5 room nightlife space and this time around we're bringing you our biggest UV party yet.

You can expect to see glow UV paint, UV cannons and thousands of glowsticks. Music on the night will be split across all the rooms with DJ's playing Hip-Hop, D&B, House, Disco, R&B, Pop, EDM and more - basically, there's something for everyone. P.S: make sure you get a pic with our giant GlowBot!
