Any London gathering the weekend of 21st April?

I've seen there's one at the Grand, but no others.

Been looking myself and haven't found anything. Would really like to go to a bash and I'm looking at the Grand one ... but I honestly thought there would be alot more interest from UK fans to do something to mark the weekend. Don't fancy doing a bash on my own ...

Awesome links, thanks for sharing. Brixton one sounds good ... a proper club rather than a bar.

Just wish the trains home for me went later than midnight .... makes staying out late uptown a real pain in the backside!! neutral

I've been debating it sooo much. The Macbeth is miles out for me and I kinda don't want the pub/alcohol vibe. However the Ritzy is small and I want to dance.

Update: I'm doing the Ritzy. Ticket link below. I'll be wearing a tailcoat that has a lovesexy heart on one shoulder, with big hair. Yes, 80's style.

Anyone done a night at the Ritzy before...wondering what the atmosphere will be? I'm hoping for a jumping dancefloor, rather than a stand around drinking sort of night ...

It's an independent cinema and cafe that runs events in an upstairs 2 storey bar.

In my experience it's usually drinking downstairs and dancing upstairs, with chill out space on the balcony. I'd say it takes 300 tops.

It's a good vibe, but then I'm usually there for blues and swing dancing nights, which are light on drunkeness and big on dancing.

PS If you want a big club vibe then Clapham Grand is your place, but from friends who've been it's high alcohol low class. Probably ok if you're a mainstream clubber, but I only go to venues where I can dance without getting groped.

Thanks for the info ... I'd prefer decent patrons over low alcohol prices and handsy dancers, so will give the Grand a miss. A night with proper Prince fans will be much preferred!

Huge shout out to all the lovely orgers at the Ritzy tonight. Thank you for making a sad anniversary into a chance to dance, and wow can orgers dance!

I might try to make it to Peckham tomorrow (https://www.residentadvisor.net/event.aspx?932080) but if I don't have an awesome time xxx

PS The DJ is emailing me a set list. Feel free to drop me an org note if you'd like me to pass it on x

There were proper Prince fans a-plenty at The Grand. Rather less so at Kesington Roof Gardens.
