Are you stuck in the 70's? Feel good in flares; walk tall on platform boots; glamorous in glitter? 

Join DJ's "Disco Sue" and "Markus" playing the best/worst mix of glam, punk, disco, ska and cheesy pop on old school vinyl records to a friendly (if slightly worn out) bunch of party people who are reliving their youth/discovering what they missed.

70s dress positively encouraged!

Doors at 7:30pm. Tickets are £5 on the door, cash only.

Join Stop the Presses on their 2024 UK and European tour this Saturday at The Fighting Cocks.

Stop the Presses delivers an incredible mix of traditional ska & reggae with pop hooks – new wave style and punk rock attitude with a splash of British 2-Tone.

They will be joined by six-piece ska punk band Filthy Militia as well as Baldhead & The Dreads, combining heavy punk riffs, gritty dub bass, and tongue-in-cheek lyrics about the state of the world.

Doors open at The Fighting Cocks at 7:30pm. Tickets are £8 adv. or £10 on the door.
