One of Norwich's best-loved 90s club nights is to return for one night only promising "fresh energy" and an eclectic range of tracks.

The Marvel will return to the city for the first time since 2006 at Norwich Arts Centre almost 20 years after its final night at The Loft on Friday, May 26.

During the all-vinyl set revellers can expect to hear hip-hop, funk, reggae, latin, r and b and soul along with a sprinkling of underground dance.

One of the club night's founders, Damien Bennett, known as Sure Delight when he founded the event with Mark Calver, known at the time as the Anthropologist, as part of the hip-hop group Def Tex.

The pair teamed up with Dogfish clothing during its infancy in 1996 to form the club night at the loft, which took off instantly.

Mr Bennett said: "We started holding it every fortnight and we weren't even expecting it to last a year, let alone 10.

Norwich Evening News:

"From the first night it was packed and it was a really fresh event, we were playing new sounds and underground stuff from all the way back to the 70s and we were partnered with Dogfish which at the time was a fresh new clothing brand.

"We put lots of different sounds in the mix. It was a case of right time, right place.

"The Loft was a great safe venue with no trouble, where people could let loose and pick up on things they hadn't heard before."

He says The Marvel's one-off return at Norwich Arts Centre would look to bring the same energy at a time when most club nights only offer mainstream music.

He added: "This is going to be a flashback to those nights, with fresh energy.

Norwich Evening News:

"We've got less clubs and pubs in England now and as a result the music tends to be more mainstream pop.

"It's devastating, I feel really sad for the younger generation, not everyone wants to hear chart stuff.
