A bit of Twisted Disco for Notts Pride…

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.
