It only happens once every 4 years so make the most of it we say!

The 2016 Valentine’s Ball will be held over two nights from Friday 12th – Saturday 13th February. 

Pleasure seekers beware, Time Out will be presenting FILTH, imagine a silent disco with a twist where the shadowy caverns will play host to a dirty event of wickedness while Standon Calling will close the Lates programme with a true festival experience. Known as an overgrown house party these guys are sure to pull out all the stops to create a night to remember in a unique and exciting venue. The B-Movie Ball is a time to dust off the fancy dress box, with chances of winning bubbly prizes for best dressed its well worth the hassle. All money raised from this event will go to the current refugee crisis so party for a good cause! If all the above wasn’t enough VAULT Lates have pulled in Ceilidh Liberation Front, known as London’s most radical and most colourful ceilidh band.
