After selling over 150,000 tickets to their events, iconic LGBTQ+ collective and club night Sink The Pink today announce that they are closing their doors and holding one final party in April.
The beloved event has been running for 13 years across the UK and across the globe, but Sink The Pink have decided that their next party will be their final event.
The last Sink The Pink will be at Printworks London on Friday 15th April, the Good Friday bank holiday. Tickets will go on sale next Wednesday 2nd February.
Glyn Fussell co-founder of Sink The Pink says:
"To everyone who has ever supported, loved and been part of Sink The Pink, we deliver this piece of news with very heavy hearts, but full of pride at what has been achieved. After 13 incredible years, and a huge amount of wonderful memories, we've decided that this next party will be our final Sink The Pink event.
We’ve shown that our community can be seen and celebrated in mainstream spaces while staying true to what we believe in. We’ve proved that queerness holds enormous power and should be celebrated wherever possible. We’ve given space to the most progressive and beautiful humans that have been an integral part of the queer landscape of London. We’ve helped form friendships, relationships and life-long memories.
However, no party can last forever. Sink The Pink has achieved more than we could ever have hoped for, so we feel it’s the right time to hang up our heels and make way for a new generation of queer London to shine through. Sink The Pink is and always will be a family. We will continue to work with artists and brands to help make the world a little brighter and will always be part of our festival Mighty Hoopla, but as for club nights, this will be our final show. So see you at Printworks. We really hope you can make it. We love you all and hope you understand."
