Easter Sunday Bank Holiday Weekend – 31 March
Jaymo and Andy George – Black Dog NWS

Jaymo and Andy George have built an entire world… and that world is Moda.

This is forward-thinking music, ground-breaking DJs and a party that will stay with you forever.

The party starts at 10pm and goes on ‘til 4am. Tickets are available from Skiddle for £7 or pay £5 on the door.
