Our UV Inclusive Club Night started in 2006 -accessible and authentic clubbing for disabled and non-disabled people. We started it because we recognised two issues: Mainstream clubs do little to make their venues accessible, and socials hosted by disabled organisations can be inauthentic and unadventurous. The aim is to offer both disabled and non-disabled people a clubbing experience on a par with any town centre venue, with great production, professional DJs, live atmosphere & current music.
