The temperature’s dropped and your mind is set on hot cocoa, bonfires, fireworks and warm snuggly jumpers… well, that would be one way to do winter. The other is to don your beer jacket, get sweaty on the dancefloor and dance off the holiday weight before it even creeps in. Here’s this weeks picks to do just that.

Bodywork Autumn Series with Miles Simpson – Nov 5 Sat

bodywork

The brains behind Thunder, one of London’s best club nights, makes his way up the M4 this weekend to join the Bodywork gang. And what better way to mark the midway point of the Autumnal residency than to welcome man like Miles Simpson to the decks. He’s joined by local powerhouse and Housework resident Daisy Moon, which, all in all, makes only four pound on the door well worth it.

22:00 – 03:00 | Crofters Rights | £4 OTD
