The Refuge Come As You Are street party set the scene over Manchester Pride weekend, followed by the incredible launch of The Refuge in September, and then The Sunday Times Style launch of The Principal Hotel in November.
Under the lovingly watchful eyes of the Unabombers, New Year’s Eve at The Refuge will be hosting Vogue As You Are, an egalitarian celebration of friendship, inclusivity and togetherness through music and dancing. Some of the city’s most respected DJs will herald 2017 with an optimism that only music can provide, with a line-up that includes Krysko, DJ Paulette, Neil Diablo, Chris Massey, Blasha & Allatt (Meat free), and Dance Lady Dance. The party will be glamorously assisted by Vogue dancers, and by Chacha Boudoir performances around the main bar, Winter Garden, and The Den; and by a very special moment to mark the start of 2017.
Luke Cowdrey said: “We are creating a soundtrack for Vogue As You Are that comes from Homoelectric, Electric Elephant, Electric Chair and Electric souls, based on a love of house music, disco, northern sulphuric soul, afro, techno, outsider pop and all corners of the shop.”
