There is no theme to the fancy dress and although it is optional the prizes will be worth the effort! Check out some of the pics below of last year's sell out party.
Retribution have continued to provide the best quality entertainment, décor, fancy dress prizes and now venue since 2002 and this year will be no exception!
Due to popular demend there will be a dedicated door to door taxi service for our customers only with a pre order service available on the night or in advance.
Get advanced tickets at www.wegottickets.com or at Firebug (from 1st October). Or pay on the door, tickets give you que jumping and cheaper entry ;)
We know the rock scene has become fragmented in the last year, we want it back to its proper core underground feel and for us this years halloween will be the start of Leic's new improved scene for2009/10.

A note about the Batle 4 Bloodstock voting criteria, THIS IS NOT A POPULARITY CONTEST!
1)PROFESSIONALISM Starts at first contact and includes promotion, recording quality ect. 2) GIG DAY Punctuality, sound check ect. 3) ON STAGE Ability, stage presence ect. 4) THE HONESTY BOX!!! The bands each say who they thought was the best on the day 5) THE CROWD VOTE Speaks for it's self, one form per person on the night, so loads of forms all written with the same hand writing with only one band name on DON'T COUNT!!
There may be up to 10 independent judges on the night all with the same marking criteria.
So if you hear someone cry out "it's a fix!" or whatever, it most likely comes from bitterness or jealousy.
The heats are going really well and the final decision on who wins will go to a representative from Bloodstock!
Retribution is pleased to announce that the Bloodstock "Metal 2 The Masses" Initiative is joining forces with Wacken Open Air's "Metal Battle" Campaign and in doing so we'll be offering the best Unsigned Metal Act that the UK has to offer.
As you know the band that wins Retribution's final will go on to play Bloodstock open air this year, in addition to this:
All bands that appear at this years Bloodstock Open Air will be viewed at the festival and the winning band will to go on and play at Wacken 2010. There they will be playing alongside bands that have won their slots from the following countries.......
Austria, Belgium, Brazil, China, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Rumania, Spain, Switzerland and Ex SFRJ Republics (Inc Serbia, Croatia, BiH and Macedonia)
We only have a few places left in the heats so enter now!
We are a small independent collective of people who, due to work and family commitments, have taken the decision to spend New Year's Eve with our families therefore Retribution will not be open.
Sorry to disappoint all those who have inquired but if you came to us for your New Year celebration we would want to put on a huge show and give you an awesome time, in the current climate we couldn't guarantee that.
We will be back in 2009 every Friday and Saturday with our Rock Dj competition, Battle For Bloodstock band competition, an amazing Valentine's show (details coming soon) and much more.
Thanks again for all your support this year, Merry Christmas and a Happy Fucking New Year!
We can highly recommend Firebug for before during or after your NYE celebrations, FREE ENTRY all night with FREE BUBBLY at midnight for everyone, open until 4am!
