A club night strictly for over-30s is coming back to Manchester

No impact on your normal bedtime.

Good news, millennials! The club night that’s been created strictly for those of us over 30 years old is making a return to Manchester.

Overwhelming demand saw the last Day Fever event sell out quicker than you can say ‘cod liver oil’, but the popular daytime clubbing event is on its way back.

Created by Line of Duty and This Is England star Vicky McClure, Day Fever comes with a strict age limit and promises to have you in bed by your normal time.

It’s also co-founded by Reverend and the Makers frontman Jon McClure (no relation), who you’ll often spot behind the DJ decks.

It’s described as ‘the daytime disco that doesn’t ruin your Sunday.’


Unlike most club nights, where you’re not even walking in until 10pm and bracing yourself to throw your usual sleep routine out the window, this one kicks off at 3pm. How civilised!

It also wraps up by 8pm, so you have a plethora of post-clubbing meals on your doorstep instead of being lumped with a late-night kebab.


Since its launch, Day Fever has been selling out in cities across the UK, including here in Manchester over the past weekend.

And off the back of its success, Day Fever has already announced a new local date, returning to New Century on Sunday 5 May.

With a bank holiday Monday chasing it, they really have been considerate of the worsening hangovers of those of a certain age…


There are nostalgic TV shows, films and adverts shown on a big screen during the events.

Vicky McClure said last time the event came to Manchester: “Manchester had to be on our list for Day Fever, it just had to be!

“It’s a city we all know and love and we can’t wait to bring our disco to such an amazing venue. So get your glad rags on and come and join us for a proper party.”

Tickets for Day Fever’s Manchester event on 5 May are on sale now priced at £12.06 – you can get yours through Dice.
