Stick It On will be hosting the music entertainment in the upstairs bar. To keep within the spirit of Stick It On - which has both feet firmly planted in audience engagement and participation - they would like anybody attending to submit one of their all time favourite songs which will then played during the event to provide the soundtrack for the night. In addition, via their new event app they will also be giving a select few the opportunity to don the headphones and get behind the decks for 15 minutes of DJ fame (under Stick It On's close guidance of course).
To submit your all time favourite song either post it up on the Meet Up notice board or send it to [masked]
