While many people enjoy a quiet Valentine’s Day meal partygoers at Peterborough’s Lava Lamp will be anything but quiet as they dance into the early hours at a special romance-themed night.

Lava Lamp is the only nightclub event in Peterborough organised and attended by people with learning disabilities. They will be partying until late at the all-ticket Valentine’s night at Envy within Liquid nightclub, Peterborough, on Thursday February 14.

Six DJs, each of who has learning disabilities, will bring the dance floor to life with a mix of dance floor classics, chart dance tunes and pop anthems. They’ll all be adopting a romance-themed name and each DJ is fully trained by a Lava Lamp volunteer to use the desk, mix the tunes and get the crowd going to make sure everyone has a fantastic time.

Lava Lamp is inviting people to become members and receive a membership card which means they can join the fast track queue for all Lava Lamp events. People can join free of charge in advance from Peterborough Council for Voluntary Service (PCVS) or on the night. It will mean that people will no longer have to give contact details for their carers or supporters on the night and it will cut down on the waiting time to enter the club.

“We want people to come along and enjoy a fun night of dancing, laughter and maybe even romance!” said Enzo Petruziello, chairman and founder of Lava Lamp. “This is the first time we’ve made it possible for people to become members of Lava Lamp. The membership form is only short and it won’t take much time to complete but it will make a big difference to entry waiting times on the night.

“We’re always looking out for volunteers who help make these nights possible. If people are interested we ask them to contact Peterborough Council for Voluntary Service (PCVS).”

The Lava Lamp is the only organised nightclub event in Peterborough for people with learning disabilities and provides a place to dance, have a drink, meet new people and form relationships in a safe, relaxed and friendly environment. The events are run by volunteers and funded from donations and charitable grants.

Doors open at 8pm. Tickets and membership forms are available from PCVS and cost £3 for people with learning disabilities and £5 for their friends who don’t have learning disabilities. Carers tickets are free of charge.
