One of the biggest parties ever to hit the Grantham area is heading this way with some big name stars on the bill.
Globally recognised DJs Shapeshifters will be headlining at One Big Party with BBC Radio DJ Dave Pearce playing the latest and greatest in dance and house music at Arena UK, Allington, on Friday, April 5, and are expected to attract a few thousand fans to the venue. Organisers have already sold 700 tickets.
The evening will start at 9pm with some warm-up DJs, followed by Dave Pearce from 1am to 2am and finally Shapeshifters from 2am to 3.30am.
The event will take place in two permanent giant marquees at the arena. As part of the event there will also be a photo area where you can have your pictures taken with the celebrities. There will be bucking broncos, hot food and a licensed bar. There will also be a taxi rank at the venue. Taxis, bar, food and photos will cost extra on top of the ticket price.
Organiser Lloyd McAuliffe, who lives in Grantham, said: “Nothing like this happens around here and I hope people get behind it and support it.”
Lloyd is keen to tell people this is not a disco, but a large-scale event with £220,000 worth of lighting and staging equipment attracting people from all over the region and further afield. On the night there will be a free coach service every 15 minutes from Asda in the town centre between 8pm and 10pm and 3am to 4.30am.
Tickets to the event cost £25 and are available by calling 0800 0469476 or go to www.onebigparty.co.uk where you can buy tickets and get more details about the event.
