It wasn't too long before Leeds got swept up in the Britpop wave and the club became the only place to be on a Saturday night.

DJs from the vinyl-obsessed underground UK 60s scene were brought in to host a second room at the club, playing pure northern soul, R&B, jazz and garage.

Huge bands like Supergrass and Shed Seven hung out at the club and performed secret gigs there

Even Leeds' Kaiser Chiefs spent many formative nights at the Beach before starting the band.

Club founder Richard Todd says, “This anniversary special is going to be something to be remembered, particularly as two of the club’s original DJs from 1994 – Red Helen and Dan Guest– are joining us.

You can expect the classic Brighton Beach music policy of pounding 60s soul, motown, indie, northern soul and Britpop. With club-goers travelling in from all the Brighton Beach cities, It’s going to be one hell of a night!”

Brighton Beach will come to The Wardrobe on Saturday, November 30.
