Celebrate the Triumph and Passion with the BSO at Portsmouth Guildhall

Have your say

The Glasshaus was back with a bang last week as Love Amplified partied by the beach after waiting patiently for so long.

I am already jealous of the fact I couldn’t make it and I can’t wait until the next one.

Tonight Forward are back and taking control of Flamingos Bar on Albert Road from 7pm until 1am.

If you like things deep and techy then you will love this week’s headline duo. Gracing the decks are DJs Russell Edwards and Andy Halsey and they will blow your mind. Support as usual by bubbly residents Dan Morten and Reece Hewer, and bar support with £2.50 drinks until 10pm and two-for-one cocktails all night, not forgetting the free entry.

Tomorrow welcomes a new night to the scene.

Say ‘hello’ to Bleach which will be filling the space between the other nights in Portsmouth and bringing you the best in new and old school punk, hip hop, metal and indie tunes.

They will be mixing things up with a selection of live bands and DJ sets throughout the evening from 9pm until 2am at Skye Bar in Guildhall Walk.

Entry is £3 before 11pm and £4 after, including a free shot on arrival.

Also tomorrow, the Amplified team are all excited for their Residents party in The Astoria basement from 10pm until 2am.

They will be celebrating just being them and showing you how much they love to party and proving you don’t need headliners every week when they are all stars in their own rights.

Join Abbo, Sam Bylett, Solis and The Business Partners and dance like there’s no tomorrow.

Entry is £5 all night.

Lastly on Monday night Delight are joined by the world’s bestselling rock magazine Kerrang! as they kickstart their brand new second room Distortion at The Astoria from 10pm until 2am.

Resident DJ Will Chump, Daddy Alex and Matt Random will be joined by Kerrang! radio chart show host Dan Hudson.

Enjoy the sounds of rock, metal, punk and hardcore complete with lots of giveaways and loads of drinks offers.

Entry is £4 all night.
