CLUBBERS and live music lovers are in for a treat as the iconic Balcony nightclub in Ryde is back open under new management.

Saturday night is shaping up to be great fun with Island bands Hot Pocket and a headline set from Bobbin and the Babymakers.

New manager Lynette Clark said: “We are proud to announce the return of the Balcony live music and club venue to the Island scene.

“We are aiming to utilise the prime location and local talent in eclectic areas including getting some big names in throughout the year, every year.

“Ryde has proven time and time again how it can be the centre for high quality entertainment and this is what we are focusing on, with further improvements to the premises and ever growing events.

“Watch this space for great DJs, club nights, live music, special events, food and much more to come in this new endeavour."

The Balcony is open Fridays and Saturdays from 9pm to 3am.
