Due to various issues regarding the size of the room, we will be just having DJ's to accomodate more people. 

I'm very pleased to get Tracie Young back after a 7 year absence! Billy Sullivan from The Spitfires will be on board as well as the regular mob. We also have a special guest DJ to be announced. 

Every penny raised will be going to The London Community Foundation and Evening Standard Dispossessed Fund who are working closely with those affected.
