Date and venue named for reunion of one of Burnley and the North West's most iconic nightspots

One of the highlights on the calendar in Burnley's nightlife will be taking place in June.

The Cat's Whisker's reunion will be held on Friday, June 12th, and for the second year in a row the venue is Mr Green's nightspot in the town centre.

Held to celebrate the heyday of one of Burnley's most iconic nightclubs, the event has been organised by Chris Byrne and Steve Hindley who are both well known DJs in the area.

They will both be on the decks on the night along with former Annabellas DJ Andrew Pickles who is once again flying from his home in Australia for the celebration.

Some of the revellers at last year's Cat's Whiskers reunion night.

Last year the reunion attracted over 200 revellers and raised £1,660 in memory of Mike Connolly, the former manager of the 'Cat's' and adjoining club Annabella's.

Mike, who died in 2018, was credited with saving it from closure and transforming the former Centenary Way nightspot and putting the town's nightlife 'on the map' in the 70s and 80s.

This year's party starts at 9pm and the official pre reunion bars for friends to meet up beforehand are The Swan and Remedy Gin Bar.

Tickets are £10 and will be available from the end of this week.

They can be bought from The Swan, Remedy and Electron Records in Burnley town centre, Solrize Beauty and Tanning Centre on Padiham Road and the Free Gardeners Arms in Padiham. Online tickets will also be available from Skiddle.
