The WHQ 30th Anniversary Spring Season

2023 marks WHQ Club's 30 year anniversary & we've never been stronger. Few Clubs last 10 years, never mind 30, so it's quite a milestone & we shall celebrate in style as we enter our 4th decade of independent, generation spanning, underground clubbing.

Scroll down to see our full calendar, with new shows adding weekly & links to all upcoming events & tickets, or hit 'What's On' in the menu.

We're gearing up to deliver one of the most exciting seasons of shows we've ever programmed. Whether you're already tight with our musical gang, or brand new to the city, we are dying to see you on that dancefloor.

Come along to WHQ & celebrate 30 years of youth, love, music & inclusivity with us real soon.
