Time to knuckle down to studying soon everyone, but we need to unwind sometime! So we’re holding a FREE pre-exam party with food and drink for LMU students on a first come first served basis!

There’ll be DJs and dancing in the bar and as it’s a Friday night it’s a chance to forget (just for a moment) the deadlines that lie ahead!!! Friday 26th April 6pm – 1am, free entry. Guests of students must bring ID.


Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone!

Well we’re certainly tuckered out from the Christmas Flirt! and BOUNCE parties at Rocket, as well as the relentless onslaught of fine food, copious amounts of drink and festive fun.

Hope you are too!

So it’s back to business now, and during January we will be planning all the wonderful events for you guys when teaching  starts after exams.

From 7th January we are open for students, but on a reduced hours schedule of 12 – 6pm Monday to Friday.

This is mainly because you will be studying hard to get all your coursework and exams done!!! 🙂

We re-open properly on Friday 1st February when we will be hosting a welcome party for all our new students! More details to follow soon.

After this we will be hosting a full events program during term – movie nights, club nights, gigs and comedy to name but a few.

For all the most up to date info make sure to subscribe to us on facebook and twitter.

Good luck with your exams and coursework over the next few weeks and we look forward to seeing everyone again soon!

Toga & Tequila Flirt!

It’s the end of term and the sun has decided to shine upon us. It’s great to see all the smiley faces, the sunglasses out and Pimms on demand. We too have been busy planning ahead and getting our heads around what seems to have been a really short term after Xmas.

Nonetheless, tomorrow is Flirt! last week we had a quite, non-themed night so that everyone could rest their heads but tomorrow’s Flirt! is going to be exquisite.

Toga & Tequila Flirt! Dress code? Your bed sheets. Feel like a Greek emperor and party the night away with special offers on tequila shooters as well as tequila cocktails. Sounds fun? Hell yes, because it’s going to be a great one.

The night starts as usual at 21:00 and we will be open ’till late.

If you’re dressed to impress then it’s free entry if not it’s tough love: £1.00 Metcard / £2.00 Students / £4.00 Guests (with their photo ID’s please!)

See you all tomorrow.

St. Patricks Flirt!

This Wednesday at The Rocket we will be celebrating one of our favourite events in the year. Although the original day is celebrated on the 17th of March we have made sure that the whole week is St. Patrick’s themed, we will be celebrating the day by wearing green attire and shamrocks everywhere. How much fun!!!!

As usual Flirt! will start at 21:00 and the night will end at 02:00 with special priced drinks starting from £1.50.

Come dressed in green and you get in for free

Back Room Cinema Showing: We Need To Talk About Kevin Monday 27th Feb

Monday is going to be a great night. We will be showing one of Tilda Swinton’s career highlights. A thrilling and moving film We Need To Talk About Kevin is our indie tribute for all of you.

TimeOut said about it:  ‘We Need to Talk about Kevin’ is thought-provoking, confident and fearless. It’s experimental but never alienating and horrific in all the right ways. It’s great to have Ramsay back behind the camera after too long an absence. Bring on the next one‘ five stars.

Flirt! Misfits

Only two days to go for our super special Misfits Flirt! We are dry cleaning our boiler suits and warming our powers up because Wednesday is going to EPIC!

There will also be amazing prizes (season 1,2,3 box set) for those who dare choose an super natural power and play our games!

Until Wednesday we leave you with a Misfit taster:

Our favourite Nathan quote for today?

“We have outfoxed the fox, which makes us very bloody foxy.”

Flirt! Valentines Special

Roses are red, violets are blue, tonight at The Rocket there’s some Flirt!ing to do!
