AllFrighter Relaunch💀

07/10/2018 | B Marsh

We're so sorry to all those who've had a frustrating time trying to get tickets for the CRISIS AllFrighter. Unfortunately Fixr's website crashed during the launch, therefore making it impossible for many of you to get tickets. This is completely unacceptable and as a result we've decided to pause all sales until the issue can be fixed by Fixr (ironic name, we know). The sales will resume at 4:00pm Tomorrow (8th October). Any purchased tickets are still valid, as roughly half the tickets were successfully purchased during the chaos. Again, we apologise for the frustration and are right there with you. We will be speaking to the ticket provider at length regarding this. Unsurprisingly, you can be assured they'll be getting a trick from us this Halloween, not a treat. 🎃 Many thanks for your patience!

Incident on Talbot St

26/09/2018 | Andrew Smith

Due to an incident on Talbot St this evening we are unable to use the Main Entrance of Rock City, BCL or the smoking area. The entire road has been closed off by Emergency services. We are therefore switching to a fire escape entrance located on the Belgrave Rooms side of the building. To get there, head towards Rescue Rooms Courtyard but go slightly further along. If you have been to Cock-Soc ball before - it's there. Ticketed customers looking to attend tonight, please to go to the Belgrave Rooms side and queue for ticket entry there. All ticket times will be relaxed 30 extra minutes to allow you the additional time to get here. People looking to pay on the door, we are unable to operate "The Q" at Box due to lack of access on Talbot Street. Instead, we are going to post tickets online each time we have available space. Obviously, this is not an ideal situation, but this is the best we can manage short of cancelling the event. Please bare with us as we try to administer this as quickly and as safely as we can. We will post links to the Belgrave entrance on social media,

CRISIS is going Q-Less

24/05/2018 | A Smith

We are pleased to announce that from the 6th June we will be starting a new "q-less" system for entry to CRISIS for non-ticket holders. Instead of standing outside Black Cherry Lounge for what seems like days, we invite you to go down the road to Rescue Rooms. Here, you can join an electronic queue and then hang out in Rescue Rooms, getting drinks and enjoying yourselves. Once we have space for your next door in CRISIS we will text you and you can pick up ticket whilst still in Rescue Rooms and then head straight next door. Simple.

Report Bad Resellers!

24/10/2017 | A Smith

Having previously been content to leave the reseller market of tickets to itself, we have been disturbed to see that people are marking up tickets excessively and ripping each other off. Enough is enough! We have decided to make it possible for people to report anyone marking up a ticket by more than 20%. All you have to do is message us on the contact page of the website, start an online chat or message in on any of our social media channels. We will ask for screen shots and things like that to help us make our case. Any successful reports will enable us to cancel their tickets and put them back on general sale.

Official Grad Ball After Party - Thursday 15th June

02/06/2017 | A Smith

So CRISIS have teamed up with the Union and Rock City to bring you the Official Grad Ball After Party for all those who want to keep The Grad Ball vibes going through to the wee small hours. This night is a special merged edition with the usual Rock City Thursday night - "Tuned" making it a bit of CRISIS vs Tuned. Tickets will be at £5.50 and will allow entry anytime before 1:15am. (We will also allow an extra half hour of grace for anyone running late from the ball). Tickets go on sale SUNDAY at 4PM! Please note that the venue has a license restriction of 2am entry so if you miss this you sadly won't be allowed in. Aiming for a 4am finish for those of you who can handle it!

End of Term Tickets

28/04/2017 | A Smith

Tickets for all our events in June are being released at 1pm on Sunday 7th May subject to the usual website implosion ;) We are, however, holding back an allocation of 500 tickets for the 14th June which will be made available at the Robin Hood 7s Rugby tournament that takes place at Highfields on the same day. So, if you miss out on the website you can come down to Highfields enjoy some Rugby, Music, Beers and get your CRISIS tickets.

All Nighter is here!

04/04/2017 | A Smith

Well that went quickly! Blink and this term has just disappeared. All Nighter is happening this Wednesday 5th April and we hope you will all be down to enjoy it. Doors are opening at the astonishing hour of 8pm. This isn't done this early because we hate you, but simply is the only way we can work things to make sure as many people who want to come to CRISIS can come in. Short of extending the club, the only thing we can do is increase the hours so at least at some point you can stop in. Thanks for a great term and we will see you back after the easter break
