Star line-up announced for Cambridge new £550,000 club

A fun retro line-up has been announced as Cambridge gets ready to party in new £550,000 club Vinyl, later this month (September).

Taking the headline spot on opening night Friday 21 September, alongside glitter balls and an illuminated dancefloor, will be 80s throwback TV presenter and DJ, Pat Sharp, who will play pop classics and guilty pleasures. 

On Saturday 22 September, Vinyl will welcome a performance from bubblegum pop star and TV presenter Lolly, famed for her 90s hit song ‘Hey Mickey’, which reached number 4 in the charts. 

Future guests include hip hop boy band Blazin Squad on Saturday 6 October, who have reformed after their first chart success in 2002.

Vinyl Cambridge general manager Will Hodge said: “We are delighted to confirm the line-up for the launch weekend.  The excitement is building and we’re really looking forward to some great acts that we have lined up for the opening weekend and forthcoming weeks.”

The investment by the UK’s largest late night club and bar operator, The Deltic Group, has created 20 additional jobs at the Sidney Street venue. The club is currently recruiting for full and part-time positions, from bar staff to hospitality and sales assistants. 

Manager Will started life as a DJ in clubs before moving into sales and then a management position. He said: “Previous experience isn’t necessary but what we do want are people who are fun, enthusiastic and energetic, who aren’t afraid of hard work and are willing to learn.  

“Working in clubs is fantastic fun and we’re looking for people who are prepared to work long hours, be part of a team, enjoy great rewards and are excited by the chance to build a fulfilling career.” 

Anyone interested should contact the venue. Full training will be provided for successful applicants in time for the opening weekend on 21 September. 

 Groups and parties will be catered for with seven pre-bookable VIP booths with table service from a team of hosts throughout the night. Four of the VIP areas will have their own private flashing dance floor.
