A CLUBBING experience which encourages teenagers to enjoy a safe night out is coming to Huddersfield tonight.
Nightspot Club Society on Kirkgate will be opening its doors to teens aged 13 to 17 for the event, which is being run by Dance Paradise.
The company provides a clubbing experience for youngsters and, like adult events, they can expect the very best in dance music.
However, the teens will be kept free from the dangers associated with adult nights out, namely drink, drugs and violence.
Illegal substances and booze will not be permitted and if teens are found to be under the influence their relatives will be called to come and collect them.
Parents, too, can be safe in the knowledge that safety is the priority before, after and during the heavily-chaperoned event.
Young guests will be looked after by a professional security team and Dance Paradise stewards.
Those caught intimidating others, pushing and shoving, fighting or using inappropriate language will be escorted out and at the end of the event, organisers will ensure a calm and quiet exit.
Since launching five years ago the Dance Paradise nights have been a success in venues in the North, with events taking place in Huddersfield and Holmfirth.
They now attract big names in the worlds of music and celebrity and the company is looking to make the night at the new Huddersfield venue a regular event.
Adam Gregg, who set up the company, says there is a need for the nights, especially in places like Huddersfield, where the music scene is so vibrant.
He said: “The events in the North have been hugely successful and attracted a lot of big acts. We hope to make the Huddersfield one a regular monthly event and build on its success.
“The nights offer a choice of music to cater for all tastes, from dance and R&B to chart and party music.
“They are very safety-orientated and we’re offering teenagers the opportunity to go out and meet their friends and enjoy themselves in a safe environment.
“It’s all about educating them.
“We’re saying that wouldn’t it be better if young people could go out and experience being in a nightclub within a controlled environment with people of their own age so that they know what to expect when they turn 18.”
Entertainment at tonight’s event, which runs from 7pm to 10pm, will include a UV bubble party and music from Clubland DJ Scott Page and R&B specialist DJ Sniper.
Dress is smart casual, including smart jeans and trainers, but sportswear, caps and hooded tops are not permitted.
Admission is £3 or £1 for those on the guest list, to which names can be added by texting the word SOCIETY to 07779 268203.
