Pub refit marks a bright new future

Gosport pub poised to become community hub after £250k refit

Have your say

I attended my first Guide Awards on Monday and was very happy to see Pete Scathe take home the ‘Portsmouth’s best DJ’ award.

Congratulations and good luck for all you do in 2014.

Tonight, The Barn at the Milton Arms presents The Organ Donors from 7pm.

Two rooms, two styles, nothing to complain about really.

Room one sees The Organ Donors take to the decks with support from Rennz & Raybold, Kingsley and Gary Fisher who will be pumping out the hardstyle and hard dance.

While room two is hosted by Xylem for all the trance and progressive house lovers.

Advance tickets are £5, it will be more on the door.

I am also excited by a new night to hit Portsmouth going by the name of Junk Klub.

These guys have one rule, and that is: vinyl. So DJs, dust off your record bags and head down to the Atrium from 8pm until 12am.

To kick-start the first run of nights they have invited a whole group of friends down to play their three favourite funk tunes of the moment.

You can’t beat some Friday night funk.

Entry is free.

Tomorrow night as always Amplified Sessions take over the Astoria for a night of banging house music.

Not only have they got headline DJs this week, it is also the debut set for new Amplified resident Chris Vaux.

Last year saw Germany’s Timo Mass release his new artists’ album, Lifer, as well as celebrating 10 years of residency at DC10 in Ibiza.

For extended three-hour sets they have secured DJ Timo Mass from Cocoon and Dense & Pika from Hot Flush and it will be another late one with a 5am close.

Advance tickets are £10 available from Resident Advisor.

Not forgetting Concrete Music’s legendary Tuesday night parties at The Registry from 9pm.

This week has their resident DJs playing 90s’ music all night long from house to hip hop, old school dance and garage.

Entry is £5 with discounts for students.
