The Sugarhouse nightclub


Established in 1982 and run by Lancaster University Students’ Union, The Sugarhouse has grown into the biggest nightclub in Lancaster with a star-studded calendar of guest acts and the vast majority of Lancaster’s student population at its door.

Previous acts have included the likes of Danny Howard, B. Traits, Bondax, Mistajam, Sigala, Jaguar Skills, Lethal Bizzle, Rudimental and many more. A variety of local DJs and acts are also regular to The Sugarhouse featuring at the venue’s themed weekly nights and playing a mix of genres, both new and old.

With our Purple Card it's super-easy to get bargain entry into the club and once inside there are drinks deals aplenty to keep your thirst quenched and feet dancing.

Sugarhouse even organises free Sugar Buses for students travelling to and from Lancaster University campus, ensuring nights out are kept as cheap and as safe as possible.
