What's On at Torquay Museum

Classic Mod/Ska Music Night Comes to Torquay Museum

Date: 2 February 2018

Friday, from 7pm until Midnight
Tickets £5 each

Lovers of Mod, Ska, Two-Tone, Motown, Northern Soul and 60s music are in for a rare treat as highly popular local DJ duo, The Vinyl Avengers, will once again host a lively evening of music at Torquay Museum, following on from their two successful gigs at the Museum last year.

For fans and followers of The Vinyl Avengers this is an evening with a difference, as instead of their usual venue of a bar or pub, this night of fantastic retro music will take place in the atmospheric Torquay Museum, which will be thrown open to guests for the evening. There will even be a couple of entertaining tours, highlighting the Museum’s stunning artefacts and paranormal activity that has been experienced there over the past few years.

Guests are encouraged to dress in Mod clothes, dinner suits, cocktail dresses or other retro 60s outfits.

The Vinyl Avengers are DJs Loadz and Lady Jade, who have been entertaining retro music lovers in and around Torbay since 2009. They both DJ'd full-time throughout the 1990s, taking a break to have children and now returning together as The Vinyl Avengers.

Tickets for the Mod-Soul-Ska Night at the Museum are £5 each and most of the money raised from this gig will go to Torquay Museum to help conserve and display some of the precious artefacts from its impressive collection of over 350,000 objects.

Torquay Museum has a large dancefloor, a licensed café serving beer and wine, and hot food will also be available, so a lively and entertaining evening is guaranteed for lovers of classic Mod, Ska and 60s music. However, spaces are limited so fans are strongly advised to book their tickets in advance by contacting Torquay Museum on 01803 293975.
