After a great opening 2018 party in February, we march on into our eighth year of Calle Ocho with our annual Easter party at The Faversham Leeds. We are very happy to welcome back one of the UK’s true kings of bachata plus the return of the young rising DJ star of the UK kizomba scene. Add to this the usual winning combination of 3 packed rooms (salsa, kizomba, bachata), a top residents DJ team, quality venue/soundsystem/lights, a guaranteed 100% good music policy, on-site free car parking, the late licence to 4am, the most buzzing vibe in the north, and all this for reasonable door prices. And that’s why we’re still here eight years on and as busy as day one while others come and go. We just get on with business and the leave the drama alone.
Here’s the full details of the night.
