Mint Mondays is returning to Leeds next month, with a huge season of events penned for the 7 weeks following the opening on September 19th. Tickets are on sale now.
The past four years have seen Mint Mondays become one of the biggest student parties in Leeds, with their beginnings originating from the world renowned Leeds venue, Mint Club. After the past four years have seen the party grow and grow, this year the organisers have seen it fit to permanently move the weekly knees up to the club’s bigger sister location, Mint Warehouse, where in the past there have been several one off events.

September 19th will be the day it all kicks off as the academic year begins, bringing in the seven weeks of chaos on Water Lane. In addition to a soundtrack from Jamie Hartley, Dan Hills, Joe Lobel and Tom Haigh every week, the opening party will give clubbers the chance to win tickets to Mint Festival, and there will be exciting themes and guest DJs every week following this. The week after will welcome the BlackOut DJs, before a Rise Festival special for week 3. Here Mint Warehouse will be changed into a après ski paradise, featuring guest DJs Triple Cooked.
It’s all about Flower Power during week four, which is always a highlight on the Mint Mondays calendar. There will be a VW camper on the terrace and a sea of people in fancy dress and once again, full club décor. Week 5 will see a huge guest DJ slot from Friend Within, who attracted sell-out crowds last year, before the final two weeks of the season celebrate hip-hop and Halloween.
