Saturday weekly. Almost a Belfast institution, Helter Skelter has taken on the mantel of Saturday nights at CDC Leisure and, over the course of the last few years, carved out an identity all of its own. Mainly geared towards younger clubbers - first year students are especially drawn - Helter Skelter concentrates on providing a popular night of rock, dance and indie - with few surprises, but plenty of opportunity to let your hair down in a friendly and unpretentious atmosphere. Also, the famous photo gallery, signed by most of the bands that have played there, proves to have an appeal of its own - see who you can spot snogging Liam Gallagher. Student ID is required.
