The Games are getting closer every day! Hopefully your preparations and sports training is going well ahead of this eagerly anticipated Games in Stoke and Staffordshire. The excitement is certainly there for the 23 sports on the packed weekend programme but we know many of you will be making equally committed preparations for the awe-inspiring celebration that is the Great Games Party on Saturday the 27th of June. The fancy dress theme this year is the Letter “S”, so search out your snakeskin, your smurf suit or be a sexy seventies singer…the choice is yours. As always a great prize awaits the winner.
We are also proud to present this year’s venue for the Party. It is going to take place at Keele Student’s Union.
It is no exaggeration to say that the area has an array of terrific party destinations but in this Union we think we have secured the best of the lot! This incredible venue has the flexibility and infrastructure to stage a huge spectrum of events, from formal dining and elegant soirees to live bands and performances from chart topping artists! Having benefitted from a recent £2.2 Million state-of-the-art redevelopment, this multi-award winning Union is one of the regions most sophisticated venues. Also it has been ranked in the top 4 Student’s Unions in the UK. The sound and lighting is top quality and this is a big multi-room venue with something for everyone-including sensibly priced drinks at the multiple cash bars!
The Ballroom, K2, The Bubble VIP and the Outback area will all be utilised for the ultimate party at this impressive destination. The K2 is going to be used for our quirky silent disco that was incredibly popular last year. For those of you who have never experienced a silent disco, it is a party where everybody wears headphones (provided) and you choose your favourite DJ from two stars of the decks…each with a different genre of tunes. It is certainly different but that’s what made it such fun last time around.
The main room, the Ballroom is going to feature a new Live band for 2015 – interspersed with our favourite international funky house DJ – Stuart Ojelay who is really planning to get the crowd going.
Stuart has been part of the international House scene for more than 15 years and has performed on every continent in the world.
Long associated with the legendary Hed kandi, he’s headlined some of the World’s most glamorous events including Macau China, Punta Del Este Uruguay and Cape Town, South Africa, not to mention bringing in the New Year at Pacha, Florianopolis Brazil!
He mixes a variety of soulful warm ups, deep house, bass to sumptuous disco and main room anthems. From intimate clubs, beach & pool parties to festivals, his effervescent style never fails to serve up hands in the air action on global dancefloors.
On the production side, Stuart is becoming a household name with many tracks topping the worldwide download charts and was recently voted at Number 29 of the Traxsource House Artists of 2014.
Stuart also mixed, compiled and produced the ‘Hed Kandi Taste of’ series album, which topped the iTunes download charts.
