Union launches “exclusive” new club night in old Purple Turtle cellar

Union launches ‘exclusive’ new club night The Oxford Union has announced its own ‘exclusive new social event’ to rival Bridge Thursdays. The former Purple Turtle has been refurbished to create a ‘chilled-out wine and gin bar’ and a club area ‘where a top London DJ, will be playing all the best chart music (sic)’.
Titled ‘Re-Union’, the event launches this Thursday, priced at £3 for non-members and free for members after 11.30pm. Re-Union will run every Thursday from 10pm until 3:30.
The cellar had once been home to popular club venue Purple Turtle but the managers were unable to negotiate a new lease in Michaelmas. The cellar now hosts Plush which was also forced to move from its site near the train station.
