Their New Years Day parties have become the stuff of legend and they’ve taken this pop spirit to festivals mixing classic Bugged Out tunes with house party pop and R&B. This is what Little Bugger is all about – join us after work to start the weekend early.

Helping Little Bugger will be residents Lemmy Ashton and Johnno, with special guests making unannounced appearances in the award-winning London landmark.
