The new venture, which is due to launch in September, will create 60 jobs.

The club in Bilston Street has been taken over by Stephen Thomas, the founder of Luminar. It will undergo a £500,000 refurbishment on lighting and sound before its relaunch.

Mr Thomas, chief executive of new owners No Saints Group Limited, said that the site won’t just be a nightclub but will host live music acts, comedy nights and offer free hire for charities to host fundraisers.

As usual the minnies are out.

This is splendid news indeed. How crass can some people be?

wolverhampton is more bothered about nightlife which after previous early hours experience leads to drunks and trouble, while walsall regenerates its town centre with cinemas,restaurants etc, wolverhampton degenerates into lowliness, come on wolverhampton council change your way of thinking
