The Pit is a friendly and non elitist club and all are welcome, we'd love to meet you!  See you on the dancefloor folks...

PS - A little  bit of mod history for you to explain the name The Pit.  In 1960s Newcastle the mods favourite Saturday afternoon hangout was a basement coffee shop called The Paletta.  The mods nicknamed it 'The Pit' and it was where they went to see and be seen.  We are big on remembering Newcastle's mod history hence the name for our afternoon sessions.
