Scunthorpe Nights Web Sponsors

Be a sponsor of Scunthorpe Nights

Hey everyone,
Since the website started back in 2013 we have been paying the hosting and domain from our own pockets. It is now up for it’s yearly renewal.

It would be lovely if you use Scunthorpe Nights as a member of the general public to see what’s on or as a useful resource or advertise through Scunthorpe Nights if you could donate as little as 50p through PayPal towards this year’s hosting & domain costs. It would be very much appreciated to keep us online for another year.

Local Businesses or event promoter can decide to donate a little more to advertise on our front page or Business page.



(Please email details to

(Please email details to Advert will stay on Sponsored links page for 12 months. Sponsor Links page here.

I realise asking people to part with their money is a hard thing to do but all articles,sharing,posting and attendance of events are done voluntarily and in our spare time and web hosting and domain costs add up over the years.

We have the basic wordpress so no fancy templates or add ons to pay for but the site still occurs charges.

What your donation will go towards:

  • Web hosting
  • Domain name

If you chose to donate you will be listed as a sponsor of the site for this year. We are not for profit so all proceeds raised will go towards web hosting & domain of the website.

Running Scunthorpe Nights does cost money as our reviewers will sometimes have to pay for shows and events, transport to get to reviews etc.

Thank you 🙂

For just £5 this could be your ad or article for 2 months on the homepage.

Advertising Sponsor//Joint Business cards


We are looking at getting some business cards printed. Not because we are turning into a business. We still remain free and not for profit. We don’t make any monies for the work we do on Scunthorpe Nights.They will be less of a business card and more a small representation of our links and to make people aware we exist to help support local.

Initially we rely on people sharing and liking us to reach a further audience to promote locally for free but we need to get out there with some physical promotion. We would love to team up with a local printing business and offer reserve side advertising on the cards for a discount as this money to further Scunthorpe Nights comes from my personal pocket. I do enjoy it and it is my hobby but it’s nice to be lent a hand back.

Already our site stats have urged me to by so we want to keep growing.

If you or someone you know would be interested please email

Public Message// To Our Following


As the main admin and creator have decided to purchase the domain name of for 2 years. Then after that WordPress fees to redirect our site were kindly paid for by our new web sponsor (Who often does us some reviews) Casper’s Computers  for one year.

We have been receiving more and more interest and web traffic and with that we feel it was time to

By now you should know we are not for profit  and while we can it will continue to remain this way.

This is our hobby and we do not get paid in monies so please appreciate, we are personally self funding this to promote and support our local area and scenes. We enjoy what we do but occasionally we can make spelling mistakes and use incorrect grammar and punctuation. A lot of the time we are quite busy with full time and work and other side projects and obviously our own lives but when we are asked to do something politely for an event or review we will try to do it as quick as we can.

We would also like to thank our news partners The Scunthorpe Independent for being behind us and kick starting our reviewing, they are a fantastic platform of non profit news and media.

Music Review: The Sunshine Underground


If you haven’t already heard then The Sunshine Underground are headlining the biggest local adult festival of the summer Party In The Pines and also if you haven’t heard, where have you been?

Having never seen these guys perform live before I can’t comment on performance but people who have seen them live I know have been back again and again. I’m pretty sure they will have the late night Party In The Pines crowd jumping to their beat.And probably make some new fans along the way.

These guys are usually in a 3 piece but when performing live they have added band members to help produce their electronic dance tunes that’ll make your arms pump and your feet stamp and possibly a head shake.

If you were around in the 80’s you will most likely remember Depeche Mode and if you weren’t maybe your parents still play them on an evening. The Sunshine Underground are often compared to Depeche modes style. The Sunshine Underground has a distinct Eighties sound, dominated by drum machines & synths.

Technology has obviously advanced through the years of music since the 80’s but a lot of modern bands will take the synth twists and the familiar 80’s backtrack feel. I find that quite a lot of current bands revert to the 80’s for their effects and there is always something quite reminiscent about this. If you were an 80’s kid you’ll probably find a familiarisation with the synths from bobbing about in your baby grow in front of Top Of The Pops.

The newest Sunshine Underground album sounds like a mixture of 1980’s Saturday night dance floor hits and into the more technical era of the 2000’s.The songs are full and padded with different sounds.

I’ve also seen it compared to a mixture of current dance floor hits like Friendly Fires or The Rapture.

The opening to the album is more heavily rooted in dance with pulsing synth blending with a constant mid-tempo drum beat and hints of electronica with lad rock vocals powering through.It sends out positive vibes and makes you want to move.

But I won’t go into detail too much as it’s always better to hear music or experience a band live than to be told what someone else thinks.

If we pick your logo it will feature for at least a month.

We have the space & the people on our website to help promote and we would like to share.

Scunthorpe Nights has always been and still is a Not for Profit Organisation and we would like to continue as non profit for as long as we can. Obviously this means we don’t get PAID reaches on Facebook, Fancy PVC banners, printed t-shirts or a .com or We have made the best out of what we can do for free even this website is a free template on a free host.

  • Also for no investment into paid advertising, our reach daily is climbing.

Become a Sponsor or In Association: Our main association and main partnership is with as we believe they share similar views and ethics and are also not for profit. We have started to get interest from outside money making parties/companies for branding and their joint use of branching our name and brand. For now we will decline any relationship of this kind as we want to keep the service free, friendly and profit free.

We will however consider sponsors to appear on our advertising. This means you will appear on our advertising and we will appear on yours. This means if there are ever flyers etc you will have the option to print your advert on the reverse.

A Local printing company association would be very useful to us for promotion and recommendations to promoters, venues and general public. We already do recommendations on the quiet. Association with a local printers would mean we could wear sponsored logo t-shirts for the company with our logo alongside and put them on any other marketing.
