POP!

IF YOU WISH TO CIRCLE BEFORE THE EVENT, PLEASE PURCHASE THE 'CIRCLING' TICKET, WHICH WILL GET YOU IN FOR THE ENTIRE NIGHT - YOU CAN ALSO USE THIS TO REGISTER YOUR SPORTS CLUB DURING THE PURCHASE PROCESS. (You do not need to register for circling if you have purchased a Season Pass or Platinum Card).

POP! is our midweek student spectacular, offering you the ultimate excuse to act silly to a soundtrack of the purest musical fromage.

Poptastic, cheesy tunes from yesteryear are the order of the day - come along and indulge your guilty pleasures at the ultimate student night!

Disco Dave is currently in rehearsals for Dagenham Dave & The Disco Slaves' upcoming appearance on 'The Big Reunion', but you'll no doubt be delighted to hear that tonight's POP! will be joyfully presided over by his equally dodgy cousin, Richard D'isceaux - affectionately known to the masses as Disco Dick. He's got a mash-up of 'Call Me Maybe' with 'Gangnam Style' and everything...



In 1982, aristocratic family pop dynasty Dagenham Dave & The Disco Slaves were riding high in the charts with their renowned dancefloor anthem, "The Beat is Thumping (My Love is Pumping)". However, following a thoroughly embarrassing incident involving a badger, ten pints of stout and a reporter from the Daily Star, their upward ascent into pop’s higher echelons was cruelly skewered, ostensibly paving the way for a bunch of lightweight chancers like Showaddywaddy and Wham! to become icons of a generation.

The pint-sized child star of that family, Little David D’isceaux (nicknamed 'Ravey Davey' by an adoring music press), vowed to clear the name of his disgraced lineage and pursued an ill-fated career in pop music which reached a heinous nadir when his much-vaunted comeback single "Every Badger (Just Wants to Be Loved)" limped to Number 405 in the charts with just 13 sales. His career has now been relegated to the student market as he plots his great comeback to show us once and for all that his star will shine again…


If you have a nightclub; if no-one else can help; and if you can find him – maybe you can hire: Disco Dave.
