For the second instalment of Snape Sessions, we welcome one of the finest and most respected DJs working today.

Throughout the late 90s and 00s, Norman Jay built a reputation as one of the world’s most popular DJs, taking the underground sounds of rare groove and house firmly into the mainstream. He remains at the forefront of club culture, continually converting generations of clubbers to the cause, championing new sounds, yet never forgetting his musical roots. A night with guaranteed ‘Good Times’, Norman will be supported by Tadi the Great and IssyB.

Snape Sessions are different to our usual concerts – they are standing gigs, you’re free to come and go and the bar will be open throughout. Think of it at as a club night, that ends at midnight! Check out the photographs from the sell-out inaugural Snape Sessions with Gilles Peterson on our Instagram page.
