At the moment the website for Church of Madness seems to be down. I'm curious about how dressed-up you lot get for this event. I'm relatively new to the area & would like to attend, but don't want to overdo or underdo it. *blush*

The beauty of it being a pub night is you can dress up or down as you wish. I have gone pretty fully cybered up, and gone in my work clothes - noones batted an eyelid at either. a lot of the risings regulars are there so its a good mixed crowd normally

The website is a year out of date but it is still going. Five years of a weekly night.

Contrary to rumours of its demise Church of Madness is alive, kicking and bouncing around excitedly. Go to for details - and come down next Wednesday!
