“We are a family at Toolroom, and this has always been important to us, the family ethos resonates through everything that we do, and hopefully this also comes through loud and clear on the radio shows.”

On 10th October, we took over our local pub in Maidstone and hosted a one off night with our #ToolroomFamily to celebrate the 500th episode of Toolroom Radio. We swapped the dance floor for a pub carpet; the lasers became side lamps, and instead of a space filled with 2,000 ravers, we had just 200 that had been personally invited. But, the one thing that didn’t change? The atmosphere.
In keeping with our night’s surroundings, we hosted a pub quiz where our artists became the team captains and our fans each joined a team. Once the quiz had finished and the prizes were handed out, the DJs took over. First up was Mark, and that was it, the crowd were fired up and ready to celebrate. The remainder of the night included: Leftwing : Kody, Friend Within, Maxinne, Wheats, Martin Ikin and Siege. It was a banger after banger, and a packed pub carpet full of smiley faces.
