With support from Seb Fontaine, Tom Novy, Marcella Woods, Yomanda & Jason Fubar, legendary British dance DJ Judge Jules presents ‘a mixed bag of timeless iconic anthems’ in a loving interpretation of the smash-hit Kevin and Perry Go Large soundtrack, which he produced in 2000. Promising ‘a representation of Judge Jules at his very best’, Goes Large celebrates a seminal UK club culture film and its influence on the scene today.

Foreverland: Down the Rabbit Hole | Sat 4 Feb | 9pm-3am | From £21

Featuring trippy decorations, inflatables, interactive characters and ‘a sea of chaotic confetti’, Down the Rabbit Hole promises ‘raving like never before’ amidst surreal theatrics and ‘myriad melting moments’ set to six hours of neuron-stalling house and tech music.

The Murder Capital | Thu 16 Feb | 7-11pm | £17.50
