Reviews of Poptastic in Manchester

Poptastic venue information

Welcome to Poptastic!

Looking back over its 20 year reign as the UK's most popular gay clubbing event, it's hard to believe that Poptastic came into being as a one-off event in the basement of Blooms Hotel in Manchester. Promoter and 'Mr Poptastic' Jon Hamilton wanted to offer an alternative to Manchester's house-obsessed, muscled-up Gay Village and hit on the unthinkable – a club night where Indie Kids and Pop Queens came together to dance, drink and get leathered while dancing their favourite tunes.

They said it would never work.
20 years on, Poptastic has branched out and holds regular residencies across the UK, with several more planned for 2017. Whether it be sailing down the Manchester Ship Canal on HMS Poptastic, taking over Heaven London or honouring the clubs patron saint with a one-off night of Kylie Pop, the Poptastic Army have proved that not only can you make the unthinkable happen; you can have an amazing time doing it.

Poptastic continues to grow bigger and better!

Poptastic is queer clubbing!
