Under One Roof, a club night created for disabled ravers, is taking over the terrace at The Refuge this weekend.

The fully-accessible event creates a safe space with plenty of room for those with disabilities to rave the night away.

As well as its date in the basement of YES this week, they’ve now announced another epic party in the city centre.

Under One Roof will take part in the Terrace Takeover series at the Refuge, the flagship restaurant and bar inside the Kimpton Clocktower hotel.

Aalice has run Under One Roof for the past four years, as well as taking part in and hosting panel discussions across the UK.

She has passionately spoken about issues in the music industry including accessibility and intersectionality.

Meanwhile Jake Smith, who DJs from his wheelchair, has gigged at some of the biggest clubbing events in the world, including Creamfields and at Ocean Beach in Ibiza.

Jake, who recently created a Mini Mix for The Manc Audio, says: “I want to change people’s perceptions of disability, and to show people that if you have a disability it can’t stop you achieving your dreams!”

The free Under One Roof event will take place on Saturday 23 July from 5pm, is accessible for all and everyone is welcome.
