Tomorrow night DJ Replay from House Knights will host his Ugly Sweater party at Fort Cumberland Arms in Southsea. A free drink will go to the guest with the worst jumper. Expect plenty of banter, old school vibes and heaps of beats from 7pm-12am. Entry will be free and the line-up will be DJs Replay, Rosso1031, Alan Baxter, Matteo and Stubzy. 

Meanwhile over at Lord John Russell on Albert Road, Southern Exposure and Groovebox resident DJ Groover Washington will be taking over SoLo with a four-hour house and disco set. He’s had over 30 years of experience playing out across the UK including venues such as The Empire and Ministry of Sound. Expect a fine selection of house and disco beats! Entry will be free from 9pm-1am.

Sunday evening will also see LJR host The LJR Po-Ho-Ho Party Chirstmas party from 12am-12pm. Expect Christmas dinners, plenty of Christmas anthems, games and live football to be shown!
