Back To Now 2 - Daytime Old Skool Party
- Sat 14th Sep 2019, 14:00 – Sat 14th Sep 2019, 19:00
- 20 At The Kings Hotel , 20 Wood Street, Old Town, Swindon, Wiltshire SN1 4AB
Back To Now is the world’s first ‘smartphone free’ Old Skool party! A unique, day time event, that brings together like-minded people to celebrate late 80s and early 90s Rave culture. We create a safe, friendly and 'phone free' space, where you can socialise, have fun and fully enjoy the music in the present moment, without the distraction of smartphones. A chance to disconnect from the digital world and reconnect with each other, like we used to.
Times have changed, we're all a little bit older and some of us can't make night time events anymore, due to kids, work etc. This is an ideal opportunity to dust off those raving shoes for a few hours, feel the magic of those spine tingling, Old Skool tracks again - and still be home in time for dinner!
So whether you want to dance all afternoon, sit down and reminisce, catch up with friends or meet new ones, we would love to see you there!
All we respectfully ask is that you leave your 'virtual self' at the door and keep your phone away. We think you’ll enjoy looking up from your gadgets for a little while and experience the music and our shared love of it IN PERSON.
A few lovely quotes from people who attended our last event in May...

The Venue: 20 At The Kings Hotel & Restaurant (known previously as 'The Kings') first opened in the 1830s and is one of the grand old buildings of Swindon. It's lost none of it's old-fashioned grandeur and we're excited to be holding our event upstairs in the fabulous Ballroom!
