Josie has DJed for us on three occasions before including on International Women’s Day earlier this year. Her past guest sets have included the likes of Belle and Sebastian, Paul Simon, Slow Club, Billy Bragg, The Smiths, Pulp, The Cure, X-Ray Spex, Neutral Milk Hotel, Standard Fare and Le Tigre. You can listen to one of her DJ sets on our Spotify page.

She has compiled a mix CD called Music For the Morning After a Big Dance which will be given out for free to the first 25 people through the door!

We will also be projecting Monty Python and the Holy Grail which Josie has chosen specifically for the night.
