Definitely worth visiting, with good music and a great mix of people. Just beware of the low ceilings...!

Thanks chaps! Though entry is actually two quid (I hope), and the specific club web page is http://www.scathe.demon.co.uk/resnews.htm Also, it's worth mentioning that Resurgence runs from 7 till 10.30pm owing to those draconian licensing laws.

The revised entrance fee statement: As far as I know (and as tested by the ever-forgetful Marc Elston yesterday :)... -Entrance was 2 with a membership card. -Entrance was 3 without one - 2 to get in, plus 1 for the card itself.

Was a great night! loads of friendly people! Even for someone who has never been there before! Amazing music Scathe managed to keep me on the dancefloor for an hour and a half constantly! only problem is the constant headbutting of the ceiling pipes! Great Variety in both music and Peeps!! Highly reccomended!

Reason for lack of membership card : Mr Scathe makes me dance too much & the card always turns to mush in my pocket ! Not that I mind of course... Keep it up, Pete :)

Leave your top hat, platform boots etc at home, or the beam running across the ceiling near the bar will pose a threat. Otherwise, a great night, I went for the first time recently and enjoyed it thoroughly.

DJ Pete's once a month Sunday offering, only blighted by the fact that its finishes at 10:30Pm (due to our wonderfull archaic British laws), and that its on a Sunday. Venue is the delightfully small and intimate venue of Scandals (host of Connection on a Thursday). I Have heard in recent times that Pete was in 2 minds about continuing Resurgence due to dwindling attendance. Its still going at the mo, but for how much longer is unknown!!!

Further to the above comment, Resurgence finishes at 11 these days. I've missed a few recently, but went last night, it was nicely busy and the music was excellent!

The recent resurgence was very good. Great music and a very good crowd. I was surprised how much the place filled out in fact. Brilliant.

Unfortunately like Subversion, Resurgence is no more.
