‘Dress2the9s brings a fun, sophisicated urban vibe to the city for the over 30s’

Before we were all grounded by Boris Johnson, MK’s new best-dressed music event wowed a sell-out crowd including Celebrate:MK’s Jon Boyle.

Now that I’m the wrong side of 30, I pick and choose my big nights out as I can’t face a hangover every weekend.

So when I go ‘out out’, I only go to venues that serve good beer, play good music, where I will be surrounded by nice people of a similar age to myself – and where I can get a seat if I want one!

Fortunately for me, the new over 30s night Dress2the9s in Milton Keynes ticks every box. I booked a VIP table for the spring event at Brewhouse & Kitchen and took along a group of friends that included Celebrate:MK columnist Ray Pantling, John Connolly from The Door Studio, ex-MK Dons and Aston Villa match analyst Andy Stone and our annual Christmas sandwich reviewer Leon Campbell! And what a great night we had.

From the minute we walked through the door the drinks flowed as the table service was exceptional. I love a bit of UK Garage music so it was great to hear the DJ playing a few of the old bangers, alongside some classic RnB, soul, reggae and drum and bass, with an enthusiastic MC hyping the sell-out crowd throughout.

The strict dress code of no jeans or trainers really helped to establish a sense of occasion as everyone looked fabulous.

I met some lovely people, including the promoter Otis (pictured below with me), who has done a brilliant job of creating a welcoming family atmosphere at the event he has expanded to Milton Keynes from Nottingham.

Overall, Dress2the9s brings a fun, sophisticated vibe to MK for the over 30s and I can’t wait for the next one after lockdown!
