The venue, Astoria, was an historic 1937 Odeon picture house, the complete architectural interior is now matt black making for a very atmospheric dark surrounding, perfectly fitting our event… Very aptly the first film to be shown there was entitled ‘Dark Journey’ starring Conrad Veidt and Vivien Leigh.




Formed through a mutual love of 80’s goth and alternative rock music.  Sanctum Sanctorium are a live 6-piece band that faithfully recreate classic hits by artists such as The Cult, Killing Joke, Sisters of Mercy, Siouxsie and The Banshees, The Cure, Bauhaus and more.  Visually and musically, they are startlingly accurate.




The UKs premier tribute to Gary Numan’s 40+ music career. This 5-piece band create an authentic huge Numan wall of sound, including classic hits, fan favourites and of course those hidden gems that Numan no longer performs Live.
