The Scene

Pride Scene

Gay village? If you want to hit a big LGBT venue you've got at least 2 hours travelling to do, so take advantage of the events run by AberPride.


Every week we have at least two social events. Regular as clockwork on a Wednesday at Harleys at 7.30pm.

We also hold weekly coffee socials it's nice to just sit around, chat, treat yourself to some food and a few games of pool

This year watch out for Jess, your Ents officer she's planning some pretty big stuff along the lines of themed socials etc.


This is where we make up for the lack of a gay bar in Aber. We turn the union into one! Yup once a month we take over the union Main Room for a night of varied music  and crazy dancing!

Aber Scene

So what does the Aber Scene offer? Not much outside the society events, however there are a few places which are good fun and most places in Aber are gay friendly.

Rummers: It's a bar you're not likely to forget; the sawdust on the floor and the candlelit tables will be etched on your memory forever.

The Union: Cheap drinks, and music till late, the Union offers some really good nights and a society favourite is Reload!

Varsity: A really good place to start the night - don't forget a V-Card, it will save you money in the long run.

Wetherspoons: The standard chain of drinking establishments, cheap food and drink to keep any student happy.

The Cambrian: If you like cocktails then this is the place to be! name just a few - remember there are at least 50 places to drink in Aber!

Other Scenes

The nearest three scenes to us are Birmingham, Cardiff and Swansea. *information may be out of date*

Birmingham offers a wide variety of places to go: Glamourous Show Bar which is a small basement bar, The Green Room where the food is good, and a relaxed atmosphere can be found for pre-clubbing meals. Missing is a very popular place, cheesy music, male strippers, and the drag queens are funny. Angels Cafe Bar which is one of the original scene venues offers a snack menu and a relaxed attitude. Route Two is a cheap place to go and is a good pre-club venue. The Village is good for a week day pint, though at the weekend it becomes a slightly hardcore club! Last but not least The Nightingale Club and DV8 both are very student friendly and offer really good nights out. DV8 also hold Poptastic every month!

Cardiff offers Club X the busiest and arguably best gay friendly club! Then you have Exit Club with Bar/Disco with a good friendly mix of people. Wow (formerly DV8) which offers great dance mix. Then we go around the bars - the traditional 'gay' style pub The Golden Cross, then Kings Cross which is newly refurbished as well as The Edge which is above Club X and offers a popular pre-club bar and chill out zone, as well as The Packet.

Swansea LGBT scene is near Wind Street and on the High Street. Just off Wind Street you will find The Exchange, which is a relaxed friendly pub. On the High Street you will find Champers, The King's Arms, which features local celebrity drag queen CC Swan every Saturday, and a jointbar and club called Creation and Eden. There is a varied programme of music and events and there are often special guest appearances by celebrities and singers.

...and if you have the money, a trip up to Manchester's 'Gay Village' or London's Soho are well worth it ... if only to have a weekend away from Aber!!
