Joining Jaguar Skills is Bucky from Funkademia, the north's longest-running club night, recently voted by Time Out readers as one of the Top 20 Banging Nights in the UK. They’ll be tearing it up from 5 pm until 1 am on Friday, bringing timeless funk, soul, and disco.

And live music on Sunday is of the jazz and soul variety, tying in perfectly with International Jazz Day which is celebrated on that same day.

Exhibition over on Peter Street has been open for six months but has already gained a solid reputation as the go-to spot for stunning cocktails, late-night partying, and fresh small plates. And MCR Union Lager will be there all weekend serving free samples from 5-7 pm this weekend - the only place in the world you can get MCR Union fresh straight from the tank.
