Blue Camel Club – Club Night for Disabled People and their Friends
The long-running club night for learning disabled people and their friends returns to The Old Market for its first event of 2018. The night will take place on Monday 26th March.
“If it didn’t happen I would be sitting around at home and no-one would be able to get out. It’s a really good night.” Chris Love, Blue Camel Committee member and DJ
Started in 2000, the club offers a genuine clubbing experience in a safe and accessible environment for people with a learning disability. Booking only the very best in learning disabled performers, the club is a showcase for high quality learning disabled talent from around UK.
The March gig has live music from Croydon based band The Carbonators. They formed in 2011 as an echo-rock band, initially to perform alongside the legendary Damo Suzuki (ex-CAN). Since then they have honed their own rock, punk, blues, soul and jazz all mixed up into good phonics.
There is also music from Carousel’s Dancing Rock Queens, a female guitar led trio whose hip-shaking, toe-tapping anthems have become a favourite amongst the dancers at the Blue Camel Club.
With a host of DJ’s, visuals, bar and chill-out space, the club is an important fixture for learning disabled people who have limited opportunities to meet and mingle, dance and hear great bands. The event is planned and presented by the 13-strong learning disabled team and regularly attracts 300+ clubbers from across Sussex.
