LETSDISKO: The unsung hero of Leicester nightlife
The real OG of Leicester nightlife
Ahh Letsdisko, everyone's favourite grown up school night. It's a truly legendary student night that one has to experience at least once during their time in Leicester. So why are we so obsessed with it, you ask?
Letsdisko vs. Shabang = Tea vs Coffee
Forget the annual varsity events we have with DMU, Letsdisko vs Shabang is the real competition and a regular occurrence between Leicester students is the debate of which student night is better. It's almost like the impossible question of what is a Jaffa Cake, a cake or a biscuit?
Either way, we all have some pretty strong opinions. For example, if you like listening to the same generic mixes of chart toppers then Shabang is the place for you . On the contrary, if you love pop throwback songs and don't mind making an absolute twat of yourself trying to master the High School Musical dance then Letsdisko is the place for people like yourself.
Fabulous fancy dress
Another gem of Letsdisko are those people who dress up in any witty attire they can find for the various socials. These are the people who are the party animals of Leicester and don't give a damn about what everybody else thinks. Yeah, sometimes having a theme is great excuse to reveal your inner wild beast, but lets be honest this is one of the best elements of this glorious club night. The real question is why we don't all wear our sports gear and face paint more often on nights out?
"I'm loving angels instead"
The final few moments of every Wednesday night at the o2 is like when Bridget Jones and Mark Darcy finally get together and all is right in the world. By this time of the night everyone is a little worse for ware and when the lights do finally come on and you are reunited with your friends, its like you've been reunited with long lost family members except they are dressed in alcohol soaked onsies or missing half of their original outfit. As you stumble out of the o2, you know that next week you'll come running back to one of the corniest, weirdest and most amazing nights for a University of Leicester student.
Oh Letsdisko, may you forever continue to be your cheesy wonderful self.
