Following the success of last New Year’s Eve event at The Refuge, Come As You Are promises to be another hot ticket this year.

Expect a funk-soul-disco-classics style house party, Love Is The Message in The Public Bar from Manchester’s longest-standing musical institution Funkademia, with David Dunne and Keith Griffiths.

Head down to the basement for Move Ya Body – a non-stop exotic genre-jumping soundtrack courtesy of some specially selected Refuge residents and regulars, including DJ Paulette, Massey and Julie Wills of Disco Mums.

Of course, the night just wouldn’t be complete without glitter and all-around fabulousness from Cha Cha Boudoir and Carmina.

There’s also the option to purchase a ‘Dine & Dance’ ticket where you can experience quality Mancunian dining before dancing 2018 away in style.

Early booking is highly recommended.
