Due to a number of factors, we have made the difficult decision to move Lock In from Tuesdays to Saturdays. Lock In had grown into an event we never could have dreamed of, and unfortunately, outgrew its potential for a midweek event.
We’ve put a huge amount of effort making Lock In 2.0 look and sound amazing, with a whole new lighting rig (which you’ll see in Freshers’) and some incredible acts scheduled in.
An annual Lock In pass is available from here which gets you into every Lock In for the year, for just £25.
We know this comes as a disappointment, but we promise our new night is going to be just as fun. Same great drink deals, same incredible music, and a load of exciting new changes.
Our last Tuesday will be the 3rd of October, where we’re bringing back our resident DJs and special guests, S Club. Tickets available here.
As many of you are aware, on Friday we announced that we have come to the decision to move Lock In to Saturdays from October. After seeing your many comments and replies, we would like to take this opportunity to add clarification to the situation.
Whilst we have seen Lock In become an iconic night on a Tuesday, this has also come with some difficulties. We have received numerous noise complaints from neighbouring residents, which put us in a position where our licence could have been jeopardised. In addition, concerns have been raised internally and externally around mid-week drinking, related academic performance and Wednesday morning lecture engagement. With these matters in mind, as trustees, we came to the difficult decision to move the night to a Saturday. While this decision will come as a disappointment to many, and we will feel nostalgic over #SUesdays, we believe this is the right decision as we do not want to risk losing our licence.
Everything else about the night, other than the day, will remain the same – if not better. We have invested in a new lighting rig, which you’ll be able to see during our Welcome events, and we’ll still have the same great drinks deals and music. We understand that Bristol is home to some amazing nightlife, but we hope that you can still pay us a visit on Saturday.
