Persons deemed too drunk will not be admitted, and we have a zero tolerance drugs policy.


I have a couple of friends from home I want to bring to Ocean.....they don't go to Trent or UoN....is that OK?

The answer is 'Yes'...but...

King of the Ocean

Please get in touch with Andy Hoe.... prior to bringing them.

 As long as they're of student age, at other Uni's, and we think they'll fit in with everyone else we generally do let them in. We just like to know how many, and where they're from etc....you can get hold of Andy through his Instagram. Link below....

Andy 'Who'?

He's the Boss, the Gaffer....The man in charge...owner of the Big O. To cut a long story short he basically started Ocean Friday's 17 years ago....as a DJ/Promoter. And took over the club in 2008.

Some say if you cut him open VK runs through his veins.

​Andy has since emigrated to Vancouver Island, Canada with his wife and two kids.

But his love for the Big O is so strong he commutes....Yes you read that correctly. Commutes. Every 2-3 weeks he flies back from Canada to the Big O for an overnight stay, 2 flights and a drive from Heathrow to Nottingham. Averaging 18+ hours each way.

To spend 6 hours playing a questionable selection of pop music to drunk students.

If you have any Ocean related questions whatsoever, queries, complaints, suggestions, or just to say you had a great night.....drop him a message on Instagram.

All your messages go direct to him, and he replies....we like to call it the personal touch. No random emails, no management to go through.....your messages go straight to the man in charge....give him a follow while you're there.....all Ocean related promo & ticket info goes up on his Instagram and only there.
