Big news on next our #DirtyDiscoJamm party…

Image of DirtyDiscoJamm flyer for 26th September

Sad news but we knew it was coming. The Lord Roberts Pub will be shutting its doors on 30th September for what could be a long time. Current manager Shaun and his crew will be leaving for good then too.

A new owner will take control eventually but the boozer’s friendly and open-minded vibe will be gone when the doors shut that last time. This is down to the pub’s landlord. Shaun’s tried to work something out to keep The Lord Roberts running as it is now but they refused.

We’ll soon be looking for a new home for our parties. But we’re still having our early autumn #DirtyDiscoJamm party downstairs on The Lord Roberts’ final weekend. But we want it to be a night to remember so we won’t be charging you to get in. Cost ya’s zip so more cash for tipples. May chuck in some balloons too.

We really hope you can join us on Saturday 26th September for a boogie in the “disco” basement to help celebrate Shaun and his crew’s last few days plus say a sad goodbye too.

So we’ve started a record listening club…

Image ofNottsVinylSocial event flyer

Bit impulsive we know but we’ve set up a record listening club with our mate, Chris, and will be spinning Massive Attack’s “Blue Lines” on our first night plus cuts taking in the Bristol scene and much more. Connections, influences and fab stuff we think will keep the NottsVinylSocial vibe going. 

We’ll be upstairs at the Lincolnshire Poacher, Mansfield Road. 8pm ’til late-ish. £2 door tax. Should be fun. Get the lowdown herefacebook.com/nottsvinylsocial and twitter.com/nottsocialvinyl.

Who fancies a Pop Up Jamm?

Image of flyer for Pop Up Jamm on 29th Aug. Bank holiday weekend init, so we’re made up to be spinnin’ sweet disco ‘n classic pop tunes at The Lord Roberts this Saturday night from 9pm-ish.

Just after our all-vinyl Beats ‘n Treats session at Rough Trade Nottingham. Gonna a frisky day, alright.

We’ll be in the main bar space. Nice change. So don’t forget to say hello on your way to grab a tipple. Be nice to see you.

From Notts Pride to Rough Trade…

Image of Saturday Jamm at Rough Trade, Nottingham flyerMy goodness! What a ‎Notts Pride after-party that was! Big hugs to Shaun and The Lord Roberts Pub crew for making it such a great night. Lots of bopping ‘n happy people.

New mixtape time too! One of a few we did for The Lord Roberts Pub crew for their after-party knees up to make up for our DJ slot no-show. Boogie shoes are still optional.

We’re also made up to be spinning black wax again at Rough Trade Nottingham on Saturday 29th August! Beats ‘n treats session between 3 and 7pm.

We’ll be doing a vinyl-only set pulling in nuggets that lean towards beats, disco and electronica with a few surprises thrown in too. Pop in why doncha. Be nice to see ya.

Sorry – our #PrideJamm after-party on Saturday 25th July has been cancelled…

Image of The Lord Roberts pub

We’re truly gutted to say this but our #‎PrideJamm after-party at The Lord Roberts on Saturday 25th July has been cancelled due to health and safety concerns on punter numbers from Nottingham City Council licensing people. Nice of them.

They’ve instructed Shaun and his pub crew to rigidly cap people numbers during their day long Nottinghamshire Pride celebrations. And they’ve killed our after-party DJ slot too. We’ve tried to address all their concerns but they’re just not budging.

So what does this now mean? The Lord Roberts is still a fab place to celebrate Notts Pride on Saturday but we won’t be spinning tunes to give it a celebratory disco party vibe.
We’re trying to sort a post-Pride party there in the near future to make up for it. We’ll keep you posted on that one.

Before then, do have a bleedin’ good time on Saturday if you’re joining in the Notts Pride fun. And don’t forget to say hello if you see us having a few cheeky beers at The Lord Roberts that night…
