After 12 years of bringing pure unadulterated 80s joy to Brighton every Saturday (at places like New Hero/The Haunt, and most recently Green Door Store) it was quite the shock to have to close our doors this past March as a result of the pandemic. Given that it could easily be another year before clubbing as we know it returns, we here at It Is still 1985 feel we can no longer deprive you of Brighton's most beloved 80s party, so we have worked carefully to re-invent ourselves as a safe and seated event that can bring the joy of your favourite decade to life this festive season.


As such we are back at the legendary Concorde 2 this December for a limited run of parties that will allow you to get festive in groups of up to 6 on socially distanced tables, to witness the re-birth of the 80s. Our new seated experience will encompass the great music of the 80s that has always made It is still 1985 Brighton's favourite night out, plus we are planning a selection of surprises (keep your eyes peeled) that will provide you a special twist on the night you know and love.


Join us for this limited run of 80s extravaganzas as we bring all the fun of Madonna, Kate Bush, Toto, Phil Collins, Fleetwood Mac, Tears For Fears, Hall & Oates, Whitney Houston, David Bowie, The Cure and many more back to your Saturday nights just as we have done for the last 12 years.


Even in 2020, It Is Still 1985.


Events run on Saturdays in December. Each ticket represents one table seating a maximum of six people. All tables are socially distanced, as such tickets are very limited so grab yours now to avoid missing out.
