• Charnel House January Sale

    Yes, ladies and gentlemen – the first ever Charnel House January sale.

    What’s this then, how does it work?

    Well – our next night is February 6th, as you’re probably aware. As normal it’s £3.50 entry. Buuut… if you ‘pre-book’ before the end of January then we’ll do it for you for £2.20. Ooh.

    A lot of clubs do “early bird” and advance sales and this is our trial version of it – so – we’ve got a batch of 50 tickets listed on WeGotTickets.com and they’ll be available at £2 (plus 20p fee) until either (a) they’re all gone (b) January 31st. Link to get tickets.

    Sounds ok? I mean, the saving is almost a pint at our bar 😉

    So yes, February 6th – same great mix of music – same great night – but now with cheaper early bird options – but strictly til the end of Jan, else it’s £3.50 on the door.

  • End-of-Term Alternative School Disco

    chsummer06 copyYou may have heard us mention we were working on a little surprise for August. What we’ve come up with is shaping up to be one great night.

    With schools and colleges and universities coming to a close for the summer, we had the idea of an ‘End of Term Disco’ – but with all the tunes you wanted to hear.

    Let’s be honest – they were guff really, end of term discos. A sample of the top 40 and some of the usual hits from compilation albums. So, we’re going to go back to the proper alternative hits of the day : less Bananarama, more Bauhaus – Less Billy Joel, more Billy Idol – less ‘Don’t You Want Me?’ more ‘Being Boiled’ – less Prince more Pop Will Eat Itself – less Village People, more Virgin Prunes – you get the vibe. See Bart’s blackboard for more ideas of the sort of stuff we’ll play.

    So the music policy is going to be more tunes from your youth really, providing of course that your youth was spent with backcombed hair and a Gothic attitude.

    Now… because this is going back to being a student, we’re going to be charging everyone Rock Soc prices on the door. This means that for August we will be priced at just £2 entry.

    You don’t have to dress up for this one (you didn’t have to for your school disco) but we’re not gonna stop you if you want to.
