A POPULAR music event paying homage to "an unforgettable clubbing era" at former Ellesmere Port nightspot Destiny & Elite returns to the town later this month.

Decades of Dance takes place at The Whitby Club from 7.30pm on Saturday, October 23 and will host renowned trance music stars Ian Van Dahl and Dee Dee in a star-studded line up.

Now in its fourth year, more than 3,000 people have attended the nostalgia-evoking event and the latest show has almost sold out.

Flying in exclusively for the event from Belgium will be Ian Van Dahl (IVD), known for his smash hits ‘Castles in the Sky', 'Will I' and 'Reason'.

Alongside IVD will be Dee Dee performing live with unforgettable tracks such as 'Forever' and 'The One', as well as a hand-picked selection of Clubland classics.

Founder of Decades of Dance, Stephen McMillan, said: “We are bringing the very best artists from an unforgettable clubbing era to Ellesmere Port and will continue to do so – we have two of the biggest artists in this sector in Dee Dee and Ian Van Dahl.

"The events have had a stronger momentum, so it was only right that we celebrated in style especially as we start to get back to a new normality after lockdowns and restrictions."

He added: “We all have such wonderful memories of Destiny & Elite, so to see Decades of Dance have such huge popularity over such a short space of time is something I am truly proud of.

"The fact such incredible artists want to be part of Decades of Dance shows you that they are not to be missed and we are becoming a notable name in Wirral based nightlife!"

Liverpool artists DJ Mark Simon, from Radio Merseyside and Club 051, and Paul OH from the Pleasure Rooms brand, as well as DJ Dominic Currivan, formerly from the Ritzy in Brombrough and the original Destiny DJ, complete the line-up.

Stephen said: “This is just the beginning and now we know we cannot take going to events for granted, I don’t want to miss another minute.

"I can’t wait to see everyone have a great night with such wonderful and talented people once again on our stage."
