About Reactor

Reactor is sometimes Rector, aRector or even Ivan’s Dogs with an accent.

To be really reductive and slightly clumsy here, we ring up our mates and say let's get together on Saturday night and have some ‘fun’. No one has any fun, and the next day we get together with another bunch of mates and have some ‘right fun’ about the fact no one had any fun.

We were in the midst of a new season of Reactor Halls with Plastique Fantastique, Reactor and Dirty Electronics. Like everyone else, this programme has been disrupted by Covid-19, and the remaining events are postponed until further notice.
