The first event  takes place on August 9  and will cater for people with all types of  disability and mental illness.

 Event organiser and former social worker, Brett Young, 35, said: '˜Just because you have a disability shouldn't prohibit you from enjoying music on a night out. The '˜Beatz' music event will provide the full clubbing experience in a safe environment.'

Brett hopes this will be the first of regular bimonthly events  with Halloween and Christmas nights already planned.

'˜No profit will be made and any money left will be invested in further nights,' explained Mr Young.

The venue was selected for its rich musical history and excellent disabled access.

'˜The Wedgewood Rooms are on one level and have good wheelchair access and toilet facilities.' added Mr Young.

With admission costing five pounds the theme for the night  will be '˜classic dance' with  DJs Monkey Love Stunt Crew performing their set.
