A massive reunion of two of Burnley's best known iconic nightspots is just hours away.

Hundreds of people are expected to flock to the party to celebrate the halycon days of the Cat's Whiskers and Hop nightspots.

The event is being held at Project nightclub in Hammerton Street from 9pm to 3am tomorrow and tickets have been flying.

But there are stilll a few left at the Swan pub and Remedy in the town centre where anyone showing a ticket for the reunion will receive a special drinks offer.

And if you haven't managed to get a ticket there are still some available from a variety outlets including Pratts newsagents in Padiham Road, Burnley, Electron in Hall Street, Burnley, and the Old Bridge Inn, Barrowford and the Free Gardeners Arms in Padiham

The reunion has been organised by DJs who used to work the nightspots in their heyday including Chris Byrne and Steve Hindley.

The last get together was held in 2012 and this year's event was organised in weeks after former Burnley nurse Debbie Heron, who now lives in Australia, suggested it to coincide with her visit.

Debbie said: "I can't wait, it is going to be fantastic, a night to remember."
