Monthly Club Nights at Eclipse in Brentwood

We have just heard about club nights being held for people with disabilities/special needs on a Sunday at Eclipse in Brentwood to give a proper night club experience to our youngsters.

The next one is for Halloween on 1st Nov £5 can pay on the door. I have spoken to the organiser and she sounds lovely the staff and bouncers have been specially trained, any allergies etc have been taken into account e.g. no balloons, no strobe lighting etc and they are hoping to build up enough interest to hold them once a month.
