A ticket for the first ever New Years eve party at the Hacienda! I can’t find any information at all about what was actually on, it doesn’t appear in the listings in any of the newsletters, and in gigographys is only described as new years eve with no details. So maybe it was a bit of an afterthought. Actually, it wouldn’t have been as the tickets are printed properly so would have been planned in advance. Maybe they just didn’t figure out the exact details until the last minute, this being the Hacienda, that would make the most sense.
