The typical English day ends with a chat with friends and acquaintances old and new, over a few drinks in one of the local pubs…or if you are a student in Edge Hill University, a night out in the town at The Alpine Bar and Club or The Styles. Of course a lot of the time it’s a decent combination of both
So whats a typical night out like in Ormskirk? Well first lets put Ormy in perspective. It’s a small market town about 30mins from the city of Liverpool. it’s home to Edge Hill University and surrounded by a few other towns. The night life crew comprises mostly of students, who cannot help but have a good time every so often to blow off the steam from the school work, though for some especially freshers, it seems like school work blows off the steam from the nights out!
Then we have the local league, people from the local area who just like the students need to blow off the steam after a hard day at work selling kebabs and things . And finally, we have the away teams which come from far and wide. The most popular of these are the ladies and lads from skelm (for Skelmersdale), a neighbouring town with a predominantly residential population, a bevy of pretty ladies and nothing of a decent place to go out! And so they all find their way to Ormy somehow! And then we are sometimes graced by the presence of the Liverpudlians, who have scoured the clubs of Liverpool and seem not to be able to get the kick from those surroundings and decide to make the 30 minute drive down to Ormy for their night out fix.
All in all, as the various participants in the nights events converge in their various venues of choice, you cannot help but look forward to a most interesting night with the best music and very often, cheap drinks
