If you’ve never been to what was voted the ‘world’s best club’, here’s your last chance.
It’s well known now that Manchester’s legendary superclub Sankeys is closing down to head to pastures new, (Ibiza, that is) and they have announced a list of closing parties which are sure to sate the fussiest of dance appetites.
As a treat to our loyal readers we have tickets to give away to two of the most in-demand club shows there have been for years.
We have two tickets to an afternoon show with Welsh DJ and Hacienda stalwart Sasha on Saturday May 4th and two tickets to the festivities on the same day which continue well into Bank Holiday Sunday as part of the Apollonia Showcase.
The parties will be made even more special as Sankeys founder David Vincent has made the decision to knock the Basement and Bar room wall down in a gesture to the former days when the club was known as Sankeys Soap.
He said: “Bringing everything to a close has made me think about making one big space for everyone to be in and enjoy for the closing party. So we are smashing down the booth and the wall.
“We will also be giving out some of the wall and booth as souvenirs for people as they leave, to take a little piece of history home with them. This means the club will be as it was back in the Sankeys Soap era, one brilliant space.
“To me it makes perfect sense as everything comes to an end here, everyone will be there together. And also, I am really proud that Manchester legend Sasha is playing here one more time; he is the special guest for us on Saturday afternoon.”
Special guests for the Sasha show, which runs from 2.30pm until 10.30pm, are still to be confirmed, potentially making our giveaway an even more enticing proposition.
The Apollonia Showcase starts at 11pm all the way through until 6am and will include sets from Dyed Soundorom and Shonky.
Sasha plays Sankeys, 4 Radium Street, Manchester, M4 6AY on Saturday 4th May. Guests TBC. 2.30pm – 10.30pm
Apollonia Showcase is at Sankeys, 4 Radium Street, Manchester, M4 6AY on Saturday May 4 from 11pm – 6am. Featuring Dyed Soundorom, Shonky & Dan Ghenacia, Chappel, LALOOP and friends.
Please only enter if you are over 18. Sankeys request official I.D upon entry, and those who cannot produce this will be denied.
