An accessible rave created for adults with learning disabilities is returning to Manchester this month.

The Under One Roof rave will take over the basement at YES on Charles Street.

The Fat Britney – one half of the Fatcamp DJ collective – will be DJing the event when it takes place on Thursday 21 July.

Under One Roof is fully wheelchair-accessible and creates a safe space with plenty of room for those with disabilities to rave the night away.

YES will operate at a reduced capacity for the occasion.

Under One Roof said of its event, and headliner The Fat Britney: “Manchester’s only accessible rave returns to YES Basement on Thursday 21st July for a summer party!

“This time round, they welcome the very talented THE FAT BRITNEY behind the decks.

“Aptly described as a curvy curator of camp, they make up one half of FATCAMP collective, she believes in baseline supremacy, disco edits, buffet dining and in the enduring power of the Macarena.

“Resident of PREACH club, Rainy City Radio and Steam FM THE FAT BRITNEY refuses to take herself seriously and doesn’t encourage you to either.”

The Fat Britney said: “If parties won’t make themselves accessible, we’ll throw our own. Smash every door in and put a ramp down! See you on the dance floor!!”
