One of Northern Ireland’s longest-running and most popular midweek theme nights, Skool Disco at the Limelight, is set to close its doors for the final time on Thursday 9 September to make way for a new weekly club starting the following Thursday.
All good things must come to an end, just like those carefree school days which are said to be the best days of anybody’s life.
The Last Skool Disco in The Limelight will be something of a final graduation ceremony for all its loyal customers – anyone who came to the first night in 2002 as a ‘first-former’ would, by 2010 had hopefully finished their university degree and should be now working in the “real world”, if they can get a job that is!
The mix of music, which ranged from 70s and 80s cheesy pop and disco, to 90s old skool rave anthems, was provided by head boys Dave and Pat who will be playing all the classic Skool Disco tracks on the final outing.
No more conga lines, snaking throughout the club whenever Paul Simon’s Call Me Al is played, no more Rocky theme tune no more blur of glowsticks which accompanied Scooter’s Logical Song, no more getting down and dirty (quite literally!) on the dancefloor for Rock The Boat.
As Alice Cooper once said – Skool’s out – for ever!
