The Lightbox

It is a new night showcasing the best electronic grooves old and new.

There will be no one particular style, but more a focus on great tunes from solo producers right through to indie bands who add electronic sounds into their songs.

The vibe will be relaxed to begin with and will get a little more groovy as the night goes on.

Arrive early (from 6,30pm-9.30pm) and there is a pop-up with Nick from Embe2Go, with everything African and Caribbean from vegan dishes to the usual winter killer... jerk!
