Horseplay returns with another sweaty underground art party for queer people and their friends at The Loco Klub, a special venue hidden inside a network of old railway tunnels, deep beneath Temple Meads.
Our next event runs on the same evening as Don't Tell Your Mother - Social - Saturday 7th October, and we've teamed up to offer a joint event ticket. Our joint ticket gives you free entry to DTYM for pre-drinks, before you sashay up the road to the Loco Klub for a dance.
As ever you can expect a steamy mix of homo house, disco, art, liberty & sleaze from the Horseplay resident DJs along with a guest set from a much loved local guest.
£10 / £12
We are seeking installation/light/performance artists to create something for the space. Get in touch if you have an idea you want to explore.
No rules, no boundaries, wear whatever.
Described by The Guardian as “Bristol’s best gay dance party”, Horseplay is a queer-leaning art-disco-club with a positive vibe and a fine dusting of glitter and sleaze. Six years ago we launched in a sweaty basement, to a diverse crowd of queers, clubkids, misfits and dont-fits. At our core is an ethos of community, safe space and sweaty hedonism with our queer family.
SAFE SPACE POLICY
Horseplay is committed to providing an inclusive and supportive space for everyone. We have a zero tolerance policy for behaviour which doesn’t support this ethos. We will not tolerate prejudice or discrimination on grounds such as age, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, socio-economic status, ideology or culture. Be good to each other.
A hidden treasure beneath Temple Meads; The Loco Klub is a series of Brunel built railway arches which used to be the ash pits of the steam railway above. Please note the bar at this event is cash only and we have limited capacity. The Loco Klub is by the Engine Shed and Yurt Lush by the side of Temple Meads station. The club entrance is opposite Yurt Lush through the tunnel - https://www.locobristol.com/contact
The Loco Klub is wheelchair accessible, but due to it's listed building status it has uneven floors made of concrete and hemp covered wood chippings in most areas. The toilets at the venue are accessed by climbing small steps, however the nearby Yurt Lush disabled access toilet is available and is located on the same level as the event, which takes place on the ground floor. If you have specific access requirements please send us a message and we'll do what we can to facilitate. Companions to disabled customers are entitled to a free ticket.
