Partisan All Day Party ! #17

13th November 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 11:59 pm

🍉 🌴 🍂 🍇 💋 🍭 🎉



It’s the season. Let the hottest DJs in the North warm you up, come in from the cold and dance with us.
love to every single dancer who has shared in previous all dayers with us ❤️
! serious partying does not require serious sleep deprivation !
Immerse yourselves in the unique environment of a community party: no customers, no bosses, no profits – just all of us floating together in a dreamy sea of warm retro lighting, soaking up the sounds of incredible local DJs & musicians as we loosen up, extend our limbs, and move together 🐥🌸


Unfortunately, due to the limited capacity of our new venue, we can’t offer our usual free members tickets for this event but members can still purchase discounted tickets!

£5 for Partisan members – sign in to access that members discount! – Available from our Website next week.

£7 entry for non-members – now is the time to get that Partisan membership you’ve been meaning to get !! Starting from £1 a month 🙋 – Available on Resident Advisor: https://ra.co/events/1471809


The classic day party curry from This & That Café Ltd served on the dance-floor at 7pm for only £4! Curry on the dance-floor never sounded so good!

+ buckfast, espresso martini & BLOODY MARY specials to keep you buzzing 🐝
(and our regular soft drinks like club-mate & cawstons)

In our new & smaller space we no longer have bags of room to create cosy corners, but we will be making our bar area into a soft furnishings den, so rest assured you’ll have somewhere to take a seat and even a nap if required 🛋

*All profits fundraise for Partisan and push us towards re-opening in our new soon to be wheelchair accessible space & help us us continue to give free space to community groups, activist groups, and small charities*


Jungle Julia [Super Fruits]
AKA Jumping Julia. A Manchester icon through and through. For those who are local to this city you will have heard Julia’s name dropped in many a heavy techno situation. All things queer, all things techno, all things dance, maybe trance?.. You’ll have to come and see for yourself. If you simply can’t wait till November to see her, get spooky with her at Fat Out Fest’s Creatures night at TWH October 31st.

Abena [All Hands on Deck]
Do we need to introduce you to this living Mcr legend? Bringing bass & breaks from the depth of her heart, long standing volunteer, co-founder of All Hands on Deck and soon to be global DJ sensation, Abena will be laying it down at Partisan once more. Careful not to sprain your neck from the sheer power of her tunes (it’s happened before!). Not that you need any more enticement, but we heard her set at TWH for the recent night with Josey Rebelle, AceMoMA & RP Boo was impeccable.

Gut Level DJS [Sheffield]
Reigning from the 7-hilled metropolis, Gut Level DJs will be winding their way over snakes pass to slither onto the Partisan dancefloor. Gut Level is queer-led DIY event space and collective based in Sheffield & we are incredibly excited to host some of their resident DJs & founders of the space. With shared values of community, club culture & dance music, it seems only right to invite them over the Pennines. We are chomping at the bit to hear their heated blends of Italo, Acid & NRG.

d. clemente
Another Partisan all dayer debut from d.clemente the humxn bean with a passion for all dance music and raving. We have seen David shifting tonnes of bricks as a Partisan volunteer early this year, now we’re ready to witness d.clemente bring that same energy for the club to our ears. d. clemente has been wowing Manchester’s club scene ever since he arrived here last year to root down, and has firmly embedded himself as a Manchester dance-floor staple.

Teegs [Partisan/AHoD)
Partisan debuts all round! NO STRANGER to Partisan. Teegs is one of our nearest and dearest and we are honoured to have them play. You can usually find them running around at events, setting up sound equipment and being lovely to everyone. It’s their time to shine and show you their delicious musical tastes. Blompers, stompers, glitchers and wobblers, get ready for the creator of the notorious green beast sound system to flaw you with their selections.



Come and volunteer at the All Day Party #17! 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. You’ll gain free entry to the event & a free bev! Come lend a hand and have fun whilst you’re at it.
Watch this space for our volunteering opportunities.
