Funkademia does sell out most weeks so you are advised to either arrive early or purchase advance tickets, this way you can avoid the queues or even the sold out sign.

Mondo Pop!
If it wasn’t for the outrageous blackmailing of the powers that be at Trof, Mof Gimmers would have never got the chance to share his love of outlandish pop music at his weekly, Saturday night musical variety show, Mondo Pop!

Until Trof gets the incriminating video tape from Mof’s cold, dead hands, he’ll spin soul, funk, disco, pop, rock and more from across the ages. So expect cheeky cover versions of songs you know and songs you haven’t heard for ages, but wish you had.

Feel free to ask him for requests. He might not have it, but he won’t sneer at you (in fact, he might try kissing you). Good vibes and dancing to be had ’til late! Dancing on tables encouraged.

Free entry / £1.00 after 10pm

9pm – 3.30am
