This week & bank holiday weekend in the Club
Friday Tom’s upstairs doing what he does best – providing you with the rhythms to get your bank holiday weekend started, with the WHQ Uplifting Groove! Whilst downstairs, Tweekend present a night of Techno revelry with special guest Dave Brennan.
Then Saturday daytime in the luscious green setting of Leazes Park, kicking off at 1pm is The Newcastle Unity Festival. It’s no secret we’ve been involved in the organisation of this FREE festival, as it’s something we truly feel we can get behind with it’s strong message of anti-racism & pro-harmony. It’s shaping up to be a really great, family oriented day & alongside the A-List line-up of Akala, Ms. Dynamite, Panjabi MC & Natty there’s also a plethora of World Food, Childrens area, Spoken Word & so much more..!! If you’d like to read more about it, click here.
After playing the closing set at The Newcastle Unity Festival, Tom’s going to be in great spirit & fired up to deliver another exceptional WHQ Uplifting Groove show. Grooving upstairs from 11pm until late, expect nothing but the best in rare tunes that span decades, as well as your all favourites from more contemporary times too.!! Whilst downstairs the musical treats refuse to cease, with heavyweights Pirate Material & Lively Up clashing with Garage & Jungle giants respectively Spooky & Aries..!!
Then Sunday, SoulJam return after smashing their last show with an incredible set, this time they’re celebrating the bank holiday with a launch party for SoundWave Festival in Croatia..!!
New shows are coming in daily, so please check back as there is a load more to come, this really is gonna be our biggest ever Season of events, with way more shows than we even had during our massive, epic Autumn Season. Check the calendar, it’s gonna be totally 100%…

Halloween Competition Launches soon… (honest)
Thanks so much to everyone who made 2014’s Halloween 2 day Spookathon so totally fabulous..! As you have probably guessed, we are a bit behind with writing it all, due to the high volume of shows we have had on last Season & the fact that the Spring one has totally exploded..!. Think it’s starting to sound like our famous 2012 Halloween debacle…? No of course not chums..! – it won’t be long now & here’s a little taster movie of the fun in store… x.
We’ll get it all done asap & get the whole caboodle posted up here as soon as we can. We’re aiming for mid February now, as the only time we get to write it is when everyone else is fast asleep… We have now employed a handsome new office Chimpanzee / tea making Baboon, called Conor, to assist us with all the typing, so it’ll not be long now & will be well worth the extra wee wait. Thanks again to everyone who dressed up & took part in this record breaking epic.

There is a lot of info on this site, all of it super easy to find and read. Do feel free to have a good mooch about & see how we’ve got on, in our never ending, obsessive quest to make a difference, by turning people on & adding lasting value & diversity to nightlife in Newcastle.
Who we are…
Basically the deal with us is, we’ve run Clubs up here longer than anyone else & have stayed completely independent, evolving outside of & parallel to, what most people perceive to be the Newcastle ’scene’. World Headquarters is nothing like any other place in this City.
We use the established media as little as possible, existing on word of mouth, recommendation & just being generally friendly, positive & consistent in our things. We operate firmly outside of the corporate mainstream, in terms of both our music, all the diverse & different events we promote at World Headquarters Club & the cutting edge arts projects our building facilitates.
To find out more about WHQ Club or Hiring the Venue click the tags at the top of the page & they will tell you all that & all about our fantastic weekends, top notch coming events & our unique, spiritually uplifting groove.
Hitting the History & Culture tag, will give you all the background to exactly how & why, we’ve worked so hard to build & evolve a girl friendly, all inclusive, credible & cosmopolitan alternative to Newcastle’s stereotyped nightlife, out of 80’s boredom, a strong desire for racial harmony, hard work & a big box of fab records.
Please feel free & Contact Us with anything you’d like to know or say, we’d love to hear from you. All pictures shown on the site are captioned & some of them will enlarge as you click them.
Have a nice visit, take time to go deep & thanks again, for thinking of us & popping in to see all our mad things. Almost forgot..! So you can recognise us, here’s our most recent staff photo…
