PEOPLE from Weymouth and Dorchester will be able to catch a train for a club night run by and for people with learning disabilities in Dorset.

The Big Night Out event on Thursday, June 12 is expected to attract over 600 clubbers from across Dorset and Hampshire.

It has been organised by a group of Dorset-based organisations with a view to offering music lovers with learning disabilities an opportunity to go out dancing in a safe environment.

The club night at Cameo nightclub in Bournemouth will feature Bournemouth and Poole’s Mix It Up DJs, all of whom have a learning disability.

Amanda Frost from Bournemouth People First said: “It’s wonderful to be supported by Suttle Stone Quarries, a local company. It will mean we can reach more people with learning disabilities and maybe have more Big Nights Out in the future.

“It’s exciting to think we will get to see lots of new faces on the dance floor whilst listening to the tunes of our great DJ’s.”

The event starts at 7.30pm and will end at 11pm, with tickets costing £3.50 in advance from Bournemouth People First on 01202 303765 or at Friendship Club events run by People First Dorset.

Tickets will be available on the door at £4 with carers or supporters going free. For more information about travel from Weymouth and Dorchester email
