The End Closing Party
The End Closing entry information:
We'd like to announce the ticket details for The End's closing party - we have deliberated for a while over how best to run the night. Tickets for many of our closing events so far have turned up on eBay, being sold for hundreds of pounds - which we didn't feel was fair to those of you unable to buy them. So for the last night, we have decided that the fairest option is to operate on a first-come, first-served basis. There will be no advance tickets available for this party, all of the places will be available on the door.
The door price will be £40 and the venue will open from 8pm. We appreciate there may be lengthy queuing times on the night, so we've worked out a way to make the wait as fun as possible. We have obtained a licence to close West Central Street to traffic, and will be covering the queues with an awning, there will be a silent disco, and we will be providing drinks and other entertainment. You may have to wait, but it'll be the best wait ever.
The party will be going on well into Sunday afternoon, so if you wish to stagger your entry time until later, you will still have plenty of time to enjoy the closing night. The ticket price includes entry to the afterparty - so you can stay as long as you want.
The End Closing Party - Afterparty Update
The End Closing party opens at 8pm. Please plan your night - we envisage that not many people will be leaving the club between 11pm - 4am, so fewer people will be able to enter the venue between these times. It's hard to exactly predict, but from 4am the queue should be moving again.
From 6am, we will be charging a reduced price of £20, for entry into the whole venue and afterparty. The party will be in full swing at this time, with the main room open. The headliners from The End will all be playing at the afterparty in AKA, and the DJs will continue well into Sunday afternoon. So please consider staggering your entry; you will still have plenty of time to enjoy the closing night. We want to let everyone have an opportunity to join the party and say goodbye.
Contrary to some comments and any other speculation regarding The End & AKA reopening we would like to confirm that The End & AKA will cease to exist after the final party on the 24th.
The new owners, due to the recession may at some point use the building temporarily as a bar and/or entertainment venue in the future, but that is as far we know at this stage. The team behind The End and AKA will not be involved whatsoever.
