    theres a bar in greenwich called Ricks, that used to be free to hire if you had over so many people.... think it was 50 or 100

    its only a bar though, dunno what their policy on loud music would be

    yeah, would defo tear ricks to shreds, i remember a party there once.... garage all night then someone played a dnb tune and everyone started jumping around like nutters.... the people who owned the place looked like they was getting ready to phone the police!!

    place that used to be a bank??? hmmm.... Live bar?? that looks like it could have been a bank from the outside

    yeah i remember the free dnb things at goldsmiths..... never made it to one though, always ended up doing something else :(

    In Camberwell Funky Monkey (near the Leisure Centre) has a decent upstairs that they used to do for free, know a few ppl who've put stuff on there.

    Also The Cube opposite (if it's still there) prolly dirt cheap cos it was hardly ever open, but a decent venue (built into the cellar arches, so it's got nice alcoves and little tunnels, and nice acoustics, well, better than the sound system:|)

    Also the White Horse in Balham, nice swishy bar with good dancefloor area at one end, know ppl who've had Saturdays there for free.

    Also George 4th on Brixton Hill, they often used to have charity nights on, so mustn't have been charging for those.

    Been a year since I left Ldn so dunno current states, but I'm sure for a Thursday you should be able to get summat for free.

    I reckon a lot of places are sitting nearly empty and would welcome the promotion tbh.:hagglers:

    Should try Jamm in Brixton! They gave Speakers Corner it for free...

    yeh been looking into e-bar... i only live 5/10min away from there at the moment so its ideal really. But i want to move slightly closer into london..... i might check out Jam bar.

    Had a party there before.... with a radio station we was on... not sure how much... or if they paid for it at all.... will do some investigation.


    FUNKY MUNKY in camberwell would be perfect to be honest.... but not sure if they would actually let me have it eveyr month.... or even every week....?? ill email them today and find out.
