Mr Scruff Takeover - Mirror Ball Night

Mirror Ball Nights are back with a bang this Saturday, as St James welcomes the talented, multi-genre selector Mr Scruff to the stage!

“Manchester-based Mr. Scruff is a producer, cartoonist and cross-genre selector who loves to play long DJ sets, and occasionally B2B sets with similarly wide-eared end excitable DJs. His DJ sets can range from deep soul/funk/reggae/afro/jazz/latin/hip-hop to harder edged electro/house/new wave/techno/electronic, often all in the same night.”

If you’ve got a passion for funk, soul, disco and hiphop, or just love a good boogie; you’re going to want to keep this Saturday night free.

Tickets are still available but they’re going fast, don’t miss your spot on the dancefloor!

SIX: Teen Edition

Are you a theatre lover? History buff? A musical fan? This is the event for you. From Wednesday the 28th of February until Saturday the 2nd of March, The Cheshire Dramatic Arts Academy will be gracing the stage of St James with their new production: ‘SIX: The Teen Edition’.

Suitable for all ages, the uplifting plot focuses on reclaiming the stories of historical female figures, told in a modern, humorous and engaging style. With a total of 5 performances taking place over 4 days, there’s plenty of opportunity to secure your seat at this inspiring show.

Fittingly, the last of the 5 performances will kickstart International Women's Month, and to celebrate, both casts will be let loose LIVE onstage in a special one-night only smash-hit gig of SIX: Teen Edition. Pick up your tickets today!
