Calling all of the ‘Beautiful Ones’! Listen up!

Not going to the Royal Wedding of the year? Starting to wonder if your invite got lost in the post?

Worry not!

Sold Out

Our Kids Social are here with a Right Royal Britpop Knees Up! Join us at Stretford Public Hall for a family party like no other as we invite you and your nippers into our community for a very special social.

After ‘Something 4 the Weekend’?

Looking for somewhere you can ‘Disco 2000’?

Need to let your ‘Street Spirit’ shine out?

Read on - this one is for you :-

In the ballroom we will have our Britpop DJ taking you down memory lane and playing all the classic hits plus we will also have our two-channel silent disco available. If you want a break from Oasis vs Blur you can grab a headset and choose between kids’ pop faves and adults’ 90s dance party - think Trolls vs Rozalla and you will get the picture. There really is music for everyone - guaranteed to leave you feeling ‘Supersonic’! As usual, all styles of dancing are welcome on the OKS dance-floor, so whether you are a limboing Liam, a jiving Justine or a dabbing Damon, you are all welcome! There’s no rule, there’s no expectation, ‘There’s No Other Way’ than your way - so show us what you’ve got.

Made on the sofa will be there selling delicious homemade cakes direct from her ‘Country House’, and our resident face-painters from Neon Tiger Face Paint & Sparkle, and Pie Face will be there for all the ‘Girls and Boys’.

With Messy Monkeys heading up the play area and multi-sensory exploration also on offer, this is the time to get down, dirty and ‘Roll With It’ with your littles. You may bag a fancy -dress tiara or crown from our royal-family photo-frame or get regally imaginative with some ‘Mis-shapes’ at Make, Do and Mess, but don’t forget to live like ‘Common People’ in our ‘Wide Open Space’ of creativity and fun!

We will have a ‘Wonderwall’ of Madchester murals for you to colour and we hope that by the end of the afternoon you will be feeling like a ‘Lucky Man’ - (or Woman) :-)

With a fully licensed bar for ‘Cigarettes and Alcohol’. Well, actually a fully licensed bar for soft drinks and alcohol, this is an afternoon not to be missed.

Tickets are limited and for a very short time we have early bird prices of £6.50 each. Pre-walkers are free but must be registered for their ticket.
