Expect a bizarre yet fun night of ogres and princesses.

The first Shrek movie was released in 2001, starring Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy and Cameron Diaz in the lead roles of Shrek, Donkey and Fiona.

The plot (as if you don’t already know it all off by heart), revolved around an ogre who reluctantly agrees to rescue a princess in order to reclaim his home - a swamp which has been taken over by fairy tale creatures.

The movie was so successful that it went on to release a further three films, various shorts and spin-offs, a musical theatre production, and tourist attractions in both the UK and the US.

Despite being released 22 years ago, Shrek still has a hold on most of us today - especially the generation who grew up with the film, who are now adults.

It was announced that this year, A Shrek themed ‘rave’ will be touring the country, created by Like It Love It Events, to cater to the adult audience of Shrek lovers.

The event will celebrate the iconic movie in the form of a club night. It will include DJ’s playing hits from the movie soundtracks (no doubt remixed with the usual dance anthems), performers, Shrek themed drinks, prizes and much more.

Attendees are encouraged to dress up in Shrek themed costumes, with many iconic, colourful characters to choose from.

The tour will hit all of the big cities such as London, Liverpool, Glasgow, Manchester and many more. Newcastle is of course included on the tour list.
