Building on the success of last year’s celebration of all things VHS , The Duke is all poised to unleashed another round of madness upon the demanding public.
First, a bonus presentation where we take you back….all the way back to the slightly downtrodden but magical public tv studios of New York of the 1980’s.
Meet Frank Masi and his motley crew of hopefuls for fame in Stairway to Stardom: A talent show filled with some of the most mind-boggling acts that the world never got to see.
Then we start our VHS craze by lowering you into the depths of British sleaze:
Private Spy: The Full Expose will introduce you the most shocking, outrageous form of VHS journalism you never knew existed!

7.30PM | Found Footage Night | Free Entry | The Phoenix Artists Club
Things happen when you wear…Eleganza.
Perhaps the truest words ever spoken by any company, join us as The Duke takes you deep into the world of 70s fashion where outrageous outfits meets mind boggling advertising. This is the official launch of the Eleganza fanzine and there will be free copies for all to take the magic home as Duke takes you through its most brilliant story!
Then, Night Of The Found Footage: a 100 % brand new show put together bit by bit by our resident master Alex Kidd. Nothing CAN prepare you for the clips you’re about to see and suffice it to say you’ll never look at Hull the same way again!
Finally we unleash what the world has to offer with the results of our Found Footage WorldWide search.
The Duke’s friends, companions and fans all across the world have submitted clips for us to view as well as what our audience members may bring so prepare for a night of mayhem as curated by our audience unlike any other before!
