Popular DJ back at the Blue Lagoon in Portsmouth for an Over 50 disco party

DJ Nolan Davis will make an appearance at the Blue Lagoon in Hilsea – a venue he graced many times in the 90s – for the next event in April.

Regularly packed events for the over 30s took place there throughout the 1990s, but after a brief return as a night of the over 50s in March 2020, it was postponed for closings until the start of this year.

Organizer and DJ Denis Kaye said it was “wonderful” to be back.

He said: “We had a great time at this famous old venue in the 90s and it’s wonderful to bring not only the regular event back to its spiritual home, but also a one-time appearance from Nolan.”

The new Club 50 event takes place on the second Wednesday of every month, with April night being featured as an Easter special.

Nolan started his career in Mecca on the London circuit and in the nightclubs of Copenhagen. He also formed his Fun Unlimited double act with Arnold Gutbucket playing several venues in the Portsmouth area, in addition to the Blue Lagoon.

Tim Cox, manager of the Blue Lagoon – neighboring Hilsea Lido – is also delighted to host these events.

He and his family have been working with Hilsea Lido Pool for the People Trust since early 2018 to help rekindle enthusiasm for Hilsea’s facilities.

As reported, a major refurbishment is planned for 2023 following the combined award of £5m for Hilsea Lido and the Blue Lagoon in Rishi Sunak’s ‘upgrade’ announcement in the autumn budget of the last year.

Tim said: “There are exciting times ahead for these famous landmarks with memories for so many and we look forward to rekindling those memories and creating new ones.”

The next Club 50 event at the Blue Lagoon will take place on Wednesday, April 13. Tickets will cost £4 for members and £5 for those planning to join the door.
