Horse Meat Disco
Saturday 27th October we invite our favourite Disco doyens back to their spiritual Brighton haunt for a nightmare on 10 Marine Parade, their penultimate date of the year at Patterns.
It’s time to not just face your fears but literally become them as we invite you to come dressed as your worst nightmare… whether that’s Pennywise the clown from Stephen King’s IT or your irrational fear of cotton wool, your chronic Oikophobia (a fear of household content in case you were wondering!) a ‘crawler’ from British cult horror The Descent or simply ‘bubble-wrap’, exercising an approach to treating phobias known as ‘flooding’ in the psychology scene, it’s time to not just face your fears but literally become them*
*if you have a genuine phobia please ignore the above
Expect two rooms of music, decor, and what’s set to be the best Disco-tastic Halloween throw down Brighton has ever born witness to.
*** Please note fancy dress for this party will be highly encouraged… and those with the best costumes will be rewarded generously. ***

Horse Meat Disco began in a basement in London's Chinatown where co-founders James Hillard and Jim Stanton created a safe queer space for the disenfranchised disco citizens of London.
Inspired by the halcyon days of New York nightlife including Mancuso’s Loft, The Paradise Garage, Nicky Siano’s Gallery and late lamented DJ Adam Goldstone. All four resident DJs Luke Howard, Severino, Jim Stanton and James Hillard have built a reputation for their fantastic parties and high-quality disco sets. It’s the queer party for everyone; homos and heteros, club kids, bears, fashionistas, naturists, guerilla drag queens and ladies who munch.
Expect a glittering disco behemoth of classics, italo disco, house, oddities, Afro and punk funk
