Partisan are delighted to be hosting…


Open. Secret.

Open Secrets are ALL about what isn’t said – but here are a few hints:

SOUND: Way High Hi-Fi: A custom 4-point ex-BBC Rogers LS5/8 reference system with sub-bass enhancement.

MUSIC: Basically, music chosen that will sound grrrrreat on the mega speakers. If u want to get nerdy about genre then we are mounting an exploration of the Balearic – Cosmic – Industrial – Psychedelic nexus.

VIBE: LOOOOOOOSE. Various perceptual distortions in play at ALL times.

::: If I told you any more it wouldn’t be a secret :::

See u soon xxx Ruffy

🍄 🐉 💃🏾 ⭐️ 💞 🌀 🌆

Saturday December 4th – 3pm-late.

Think house party – and the best kind of party because you don’t have to clean up after! Hosted at your favourite home from home. A party from Manchester legend & long time Partisan friend & supporter Ruf Dug!

This party is a Partisan fundraiser.

Tickets through RA £5/ £7/ £10

Come and volunteer at OPEN SECRET!
Partisan wouldn’t be able to function without the support of our volunteers working bar, door & clean-up shifts to make our events happen. If you’re a new member or an interested first time volunteer, it’s a great way to meet other Partisan people and learn how to get more involved. Come lend a hand and have fun whilst you’re at it!
