On Saturday at the Village Hotel in Hilsea, from 7pm until 1am the hotel will host a Naughty ’90s Tribute event which encourages guests to dig out ‘your scrunchies and croptops’ as they present an evening of classic ’90s pop from Britney to The Venga Boys.

Meanwhile over at Acapulco on Albert Road, DJ Warren returns to play a ‘trunk full of funk, soul, disco and house’ from 7pm until 12.30am.
