The 1st Annual Cargo Boat Party [Nautical Theme Fancy Dress Compulsory]
(Please assume the reading voice of a pirate)
Arrrrrrrrrrrrr. Ahoy me hearties! Ye be reading right... A jig upon the briny deep is upon us!
Avast! As sure as Nelson lost his bollock, the fine Cargo crew are embarking on a journey to the high seas (well river) on board a vessel fit for shanties, vigorous thigh slapping and heartily slurping back as much moonshine and grog a young pirate can very well handle!
(OK you can stop now)
Seriously though we are having a boat party. This is not your average Cargo and is nothing like anything we have ever done before. This is a proper all day session with a pre party, magical mystery tour, boat party and after party! Its going to be an epic day!
This itinerary explains:
1300: Pre party @ The Great Gatsby
1500: Leave Pre Party on a coach
1545: Arrive @ our secret vessel
1600: Embark on 4 hours of cruising
2000: Cruise ends and back on the coach
2045: Arrive back in Sheffield. The after party begins @ Secret Location till late...
OK so now your savvy lets get onto the most important parts:
Often at Cargo we have to tailor our music to the environment or time of day/night that we are playing. However, on the lawless high seas we will quite simply be indulging ourselves with non stop unadulterated Cargo classics... Whether its stripped back minimal bangers from back in the early days or deep techy tribal rhythms, expect to hear the Cargo residents wreck the boat with all our favourites. And any requests will be seriously considered.
Anyone not in fancy dress will walk the plank. Its nautical theme so get creative. Goldie Hawn from overboard? Jane McDonald from Cruise Ship? Uncle Albert? And of course the obligatory pirates, sailors, mermaids and Sebastian the Crabs... Make an effort guys. It will make it all the more special! Imagine the photos! :)
Is a real boat. We'll be cruising along the Yorkshire Riviera for 4 hours with our kick ass sound system doing the business. It will literally be a mobile disco. The boat is fully licensed for music and drinks!
Its small guys. The boat can legally carry 72 passengers and 7 of those will be Cargo crew. So ONLY 65 tickets on sale! In true Cargo style, its gonna be intimate. We wont be doing a guestlist and we wont reserve tickets for mates. We're giving everyone a fair crack at this so it really is first come first served. This will probably sell out weeks before so do not mess about if you're set on coming.
There will be some freebies to keep you amused on the coach. Not to mention music and a QUIZ!
We will be setting up a website to handle the ticket payments (right here: www.cargo-sheffield.com) so that people outside of town get the same opportunity to purchase them. There will be no tickets on RA or in shops. Our own website will be handling them with no booking fee but a PAYPAL account is required.
Tickets will be priced at £14.50 which includes;
PRE PARTY, RETURN BUS TRAVEL, SUPER FUN QUIZ, FUN FREEBIES, 4 HOUR BOAT PARTY & AFTER PARTY [and lets face it, the best resident DJs in Sheffield].
Please understand that holding an event like this is very expensive and you know by now that Cargo is a non profit night. We will use the monies from this event to make it a truly memorable night and day.
I think thats all you need to know for now... We'll keep you informed!
Lets Rock The Boat! Love Cargo xx
