“ Medication every Wednesday at Cream (the Nation complex) during term time. 10pm - 2am. The U.K.'s biggest student night! Uniform is not essential but getting dressed up in your old school clothes is a lot more fun... „
Med! This is one of the most infamous student nights in Liverpool, and for good reason! Every wednesday hundreds of students descend upon nation dressed according to whatever theme the medication organisers have dreamed up that week. At only five pound to get in, and many drinks at £1.50, it's a huge draw for students. It's always mega busy, and its such a good atmosphere in there.
There are three rooms, one is r'n'b music, the next is dance and trance, and the final is pop, cheese, and soft rock. The rooms are all fairly big, the dance and pop rooms being bigger than the r'n'b room, and they all have raised platforms in the middle. There are in the bits between all the rooms, and in the section alongside the dance room. When its super busy, it does take a while to get a drink, but they've got plenty of bar staff, so even when it's crammed you will get one in the end. The drinks are very cheap, its £1.50 for most spirits and mixers, £2 for most bottles, and £1 a shot.
The atmosphere is great, its all students so you don't really get many troublemakers, everyone just wants to have a good time. Every week there is a theme, and lots of people dress up for it, seeing how inventive people have been in quite funny!
The bouncers are quite strict on entry, if you don't have a student card, you probably won't be getting in. If you don't fancy queuing, run over to Walkabout, where you can get a wristband for £5 that gets you straight in (if you do this, you have to buy a drink in Walkabout). Overall, if you're a student and you're in Liverpool, you have to try med! It's a great night. Hope this was helpful, thanks for reading.
IS IT TRUE THAT SOMETIMES LIVERPOOL LEGEND "DAVE
THE RAVE" aka DAVE DOOM ATTENDS THIS MAJOR EVENT??
THE DJS ARE SUPERB. THE MUSIC FIRST CLASS ----------
VERY DIFFERENT IN EACH OF THREE ROOMS: 1. DANCE
2. TRADITIONAL PARTY STOMP 3. INDIE/ROCK.
People are friendly. Organizers are professional and know the score.
Midweek can be a disadvantage ..... but there is no choice with weekends already overfilled.
Prices are VERY fair both entrance and bar.
VENUE: The Original CREAM building is the VERY BEST in
town with EXCELLENT SOUND SYSTEM. It is BIG and it gets VERY BUSY. ASK SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN !!!!!!
