A popular 90s music nightclub will be revived and opening its doors for a special event this year.
On April 5th The Wrexham Centenary Club at the back of the Racecourse will again play host to an evening of 90′s Dance and House music classics with all proceeds raised on the night being donated to charity.
Known then as the Cotton Club, the venue was popular among locals, and was best known for its House music nights on Saturdays and Thursdays.
The last event, which was held in November last year was a sell out, with hundreds of clubbers packing out the Centenary Club. The event was held in aid of Autism Wishes, Help for Heroes and also Leukemia Research UK.
A charity for this year has not yet been confirmed, however organisers have told us it will be a local charity.
DJ Pete Samba said: “I would just like to say it’s great being involved with a great team which has given Wrexham’s nightlife a big lift also the big benefit of raising money for local charities.
“Nostalgia has proved good things can come from clubbing. I just enjoy standing behind them wheels of steel and watching people enjoy they’re night out nothing beats it.”
Already over 300 tickets for the event have been sold for the event, with just 300 tickets remaining.
During the event there were two floors dedicated to the music that the Cotton Club was locally famed for with 90′s House music playing downstairs; and 90′s Dance classics playing upstairs.
This years event will follow a similar format, with early 90s House Music playing downstairs. However when ticket sales reach 400 the genre for the second floor will be revealed.
Organiser Joanne Hamlington said: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who was involved, it was all down to the people that came that made the night a huge success. It was surreal to see so many faces from the past smiling, hugging and having a really good time.
“I never thought we could pull it off but we did, the next one will be even better thanks to our happy crowd of party people.”
Tickets are available online at seetickets.com, at Serutti Wrexham, Chell’s Salon in Rhosnesni (opposite Rhosnesni High) and Blush salon on King Street.
The cost of the ticket is £6.50 and we are compiling a CD to sell on the night at £5. More information on the event and the CD compilation can be found on the Cotton Club Reunion Facebook page here.
