The Weekends are all about celebrating of the best of what goes on at night the rest of the year, starting at midday right the way through til 3am.
There will be a record shop throughout the month presenting work from associated labels and all the artists who have work on vinyl and other merch.
There’s something to do whether relaxing in the afternoon, or out at night, and we don’t want you to miss out so come and say Hi at the DECAGRAM bar and we’ll give you a taste of our beers, freshly brewed for the occasion.
