Famous West End nightclub loved by Boy George and Duran Duran to ‘reopen’

 

The chapel-turned-nightclub has been revived as a bar and performing arts centre A former Welsh chapel-turned-nightclub in London’s West End is to be revived as a performing arts centre and bar. The former Limelight Club, known for being a haunt of 80s hitmakers Duran Duran and Boy George, was once a famous nightspot on Shaftesbury Avenue. Before that, the 19th-century Grade-II listed building was a Presbyterian church for inner London’s Welsh community. In the years since Limelight closed down the building became a squat, then a Walkabout bar, before being transformed into a new performance centre. After years of planning and development, its anonymous landlord has won approval to upscale the venue into a major performance space, bar and restaurant amid the West End’s arts scene, run by arts charity Stone Nest, which currently occupies the former church. On Thursday, October 4 Westminster City Council’s licensing subcommittee granted Stone Nest’s landlord’s application to transform the church into a performance venue and basement bar.

Shoppers Receive Bargains, Breast Cancer Information at Local Thrift Store

 

Officials with a local thrift store gave shoppers the opportunity to shop for more than just a good deal. On Wednesday, October 10th, officials with Twice Loved Treasures, a thrift shop that benefits Inspira Medical Center, held a special shopping event to help promote breast cancer awareness. The event featured a half-off sale of everything in the store, but more importantly offered shoppers the opportunity to learn about breast cancer resources and sign up for free mammograms. While some shoppers came in just for the bargains, officials hope they walked away with life-saving information. “On a day like today we run a large sale, we have 50-percent off everything in the store,” said Holly Kennedy, coordinator, Twice Loved Treasures. “So, we bring in a group of people that don’t even realize sometimes that the information is going to be here. They’re here to get a bargain and hopefully they walk away with a lot of information.” Shoppers Receive Bargains, Breast Cancer Information at Local Thrift Store
