CARPE NOCTUM is the biggest and longest-running regular goth club in the north of England, celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. Our resident DJs HGV and Misrule boast a wealth of experience, with residencies at illustrious Leeds club nights such as Flock and Black Lodge under their belts, alongside guest appearances at clubs and festivals throughout the North, including repeat appearances at Goth City Festival, Tomorrow’s Ghosts, and Infest. Weaving sets from a broad palette of dark alternative genres and subgenres, fuelling and fuelled by the dancefloor, their ethos is that the party is all! Expect tracks old and new, bona-fide classics and hidden gems, foot-stompers and lightbulb-changers.
