The WHQ 30th Anniversary Year

Last year World Headquarters celebrated 30 years since our inception, 1993 -2023. As we now head into 2024 & our fourth decade as the city's top underground Club we have loads of fab shows & exciting events coming in for the Spring season.

Not many Clubs on the planet have lasted this long, remaining totally independent & we are now stronger than we have ever been. With that in mind, now is as good a time as any to check out our site's 'History' section, where the full arc of our existence as a Club is laid out from day one...

We shall continue to push the boundaries of Club culture & our consistent, inclusive, welcoming vibe across the generations - Keep on keeping on.

Devil Bat

A novel combo of two staples here… Proving the theory that sticking to one costume can sometimes prove more effective, as we’re just left feeling a little confused…
