It’s a safe bet that, as always, FUN CMC (the Official CMC Party on the Wednesday Night) is going to be one of the social highlights of the conference. This popular, globally notorious event is FREE ENTRY to all* registered delegates and volunteers.

Once again Fun Crew are your dedicated DJ co-hosts who are looking forward to warmly welcoming everyone to the party along with Finger Industries. This year we have ace beats, fresh treats and another exciting new venue for you – The stylish and exclusive Night Club at Sports Lounge @Gentings Casino, conveniently situated a short disco-strut from CMC central.

Of course there will be a supply of complimentary drinks and, additionally the Late Bar is well-stocked with most premium spirits. There are leather booths for nocturnal networking and a dance floor ready to heave party hearties! Year after year FUN CMC proves that children’s media people are the friendliest, most inclusive and downright funkiest of folk when it comes to a dance-off!

Fun Crew will ensure that the party stays rockin’ till the early hours with regular returning guest DJ Andrew Harrison pumping out guaranteed floor-filling bangers until 3am. When he’s not cranking out the best tunes, Andrew is a journalist, commentator and broadcaster who writes for The Guardian, Esquire and the New Statesman. He also produces ‘Remaniacs’ and ‘Bigmouth’ podcasts, and DJs at North London’s least reputable grown-up rave-up, SPENT. He says, “The FUN CMC Party is always ACE and we’re looking forward to playing eclectic floor-fillers from Chic to The Clash and Underworld to The Undertones”.

There will be something for everyone with classic pop, indie, house, electro, disco, hip-hop, northern soul and rock and roll – and that’s just for starters! Get your disco naps in ahead of the night and bring your sunglasses for early Thursday meetings…

As usual there will be an opportunity to win a bottle of the finest gin in the annual FUN CMC dance-off. Previous disco winners include Chrystel Poncet from Canal+ and Amy Kelly of The Rig. Make sure that you head for the dance-floor around MIDNIGHT and give it your best Madonna / MJ / Beyoncé / Bruno Mars etc…You’ve got to be on it to win it!

Finger Industries are back by popular demand to lend a hand and lay on surprises. The whole FUN CMC Team are devoted to ensuring that everyone has the best time and another night to remember!

FUN CMC – A great night out in a brilliant conference!
