    Hip Hop/R&B/Grime night @ The LRV

      There seems to be no actual R&B nights anywhere in Stoke, the only chance I get to listen to any form of R&B/Hip Hop/Grime is in Verve. But due to the venue not really accommodating for a dance floor it's hard to enjoy. An R&B themed night at the LRV would be ideal for people like myself to enjoy music and meet new people with similar interests. An R&B night could be held on a Friday night and this could be alternated with Flashback Friday so that one week is the new R&B theme and the next is Flashback Friday, and so on. If this doesn't suit the venue then it could be hosted on a different weekday. If this idea was to be implemented then it would bring a wider audience to the LRV
