The Young Offenders Institute (but not as you may know it!)

7 - 11pm

The Young Offenders Institute will be installing a table tennis table in the Freedom Gallery at The FleaPit for an evening of beer, music and ping pong.

We’ll supply the bats & balls and we’ve a few tricks up our sleeves to make sure everyone has a fair chance.

There'll be a prize* from The FleaPit's amazing range of micro brewed beers , organic wines and tantalising juices for the winner of each game.

Spectators and players alike will be kept entertained by DJs serving up a wide variety of music - nothing too clever, just great tunes with a certain bounce.

So even if you haven’t played since your youth club days - or since you last served time on remand - join us for a game of round the table.

We’ll have a rotating line-up of DJs serving up music to play ping pong to. That means a whole range of genres, just as long as it’s got some bounce to it.

Our favourite ping pong soundtrack
at the moment would include...
Spank Rock, !!!, Stevie Wonder, Modeselektor, Justice, Dr John, Kinks, Box Tops, Black Keys, The Free Design, Stone Roses, Jurassic 5, Lovin Spoonful, Jackie Wilson, Upsetters, Lee Moses, Reigning Sound, Come Ons, Detroit Cobras, Daptones, Primal Scream, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, New Mastersounds, Death From Above
