New Norwich comedy club to open next month

Bosses of a new Norwich nightclub which will bring a famous comedy brand, DJs and karaoke to the city next month say it will be like nothing the city has seen before .

The new �2m club Project, which has created 75 jobs, is hoping to hit the ground running with a series of launch parties and gigs at the end of next month.

A VIP launch is planned on February 24 where top rap artist Professor Green and Kiss 100 DJ EZ will be performing. It will be followed by a weekend where big names in the music industry will visit the city.

Project is set to open on the former Riverside Lava/Ignite nightclub site.

The new club is owned by the national entertainment chain Luminar Leisure brand which previously owned the Liquid nightclub on Prince of Wales Road. Stephen Lynn, head of brand for Luminar Leisure said: 'We have been in Norwich previously, but we have been away for a number of years and we have been looking for a chance to come back.

'Norwich was a great destination for us to do that. When we came back we wanted to do it properly. We have come back with everything we've got.'

An under-18 night called Love Social will be held on February 23 before the official launch on February 24.
