This Easter, we are going to carry out the Lord's will and open ALL of the Empire labyrinth and have one big huge giant massive SUPERSIZE SUMO GOOD FRIDAY PARTY!

We are switching a few things up so let us talk you through it..

THE MAIN FLOOR/ DOWNSTAIRS - ROCK / ALT / METAL / PUNK- as always, the main floor mosh*

THE POP FLOOR/ UPSTAIRS - POP / CHART / GUILTY PLEASURES - our resident pop DJ Jake Radio plays all the shit you know you shouldn't like, but just can't resist after one too many**

THE GODS FLOOR/ UP SOME MORE STAIRS - INDIE ROCK N ROLL - for those of you who aren't familiar with the Gods, it's basically another club at the very, very top of empire, one up from the pop floor, and when you're hammered it's fucking baffling. Good luck finding it

THE CHAPEL - DISCO & HOUSE FROM SHAKE - get funky in the Chapel as the DJs who present SHAKE take-over the Chapel to provide the soundtrack to your Good Friday.

THE LOUNGE - COCKTAILS N CHILL - for those who need a minute away from the madness*
