NUBU nightclub in Kidderminster has finally relaunched after the pandemic, and is back with a jam packed schedule for party goers.

The nightclub industry has been one of the hardest hit from the Covid pandemic however, Nubu nightclub on Dixon Street is injecting the party atmosphere back into Kidderminster - with a line up of well known DJs to welcome people back to the dancefloor.

Owner, Abigail Lloyd said the industry has been hit so hard, and is looking forward to resuming events and nights at the club.

"I chose not to open for table service as we don't have much outdoor space and restrictions were constantly changing," said Abigail.

"We have been hit so hard and its just been a horrific time.

"Our first opening night on Monday [July 19] was emotional and it was fantastic to see everyone dancing again.

"We had so many events planned before the pandemic which we had to cancel, so we have a backlog of nights we need to catch up with!"

This Saturday will see DJ duo, Switch Disco take to the decks and on August 14 Nubu will be hosting their own mini festival with the likes of Tom Bull, Bassboy and Louis Benton getting the crowd pumped.

On August 29 radio station KISS FM will be holding a takeover with DJ and producer Billy Da Kid.

This weekend is set to be a busy one, with all booths and VIP areas sold out.

Abigail says she really hopes she does not have to shut her club again and will follow all guidelines to ensure Nubu stays open and safe for everyone.

If the government do enforce compulsory vaccinations then obviously we will follow it but it is a lot of pressure to put on young people", said Abigail.

"Some people don't want the vaccine but they want a life."

The government’s plans for proof of vaccination requirements for nightclubs and other venues have been met with a huge backlash from the music industry.

Peter Marks, chief executive of REKOM UK, which owns 42 nightclubs including chains Pryzm, Eden and Fiction, said: “To say we are disappointed by this Government’s U-turn is an understatement.”

He added: “We are no more than a political football.

"Mandatory Covid passports may make sense one day once the entire adult population has been offered vaccines, but does government really think this threat will entice the ‘vaccine wary’ to take the vaccine? They will just stay later in the pubs and hold their parties in their houses.”
