LATE provides people with and without disabilities with the opportunity to enjoy a safe, exciting nightclub experience. Recognising that going to a nightclub for the first time can be a daunting experience – and thinking back to the transition between school discos and the odd house party, to queuing up at a nightclub on a Saturday night – this event provides people who may not have had the confidence, or felt they may have been excluded from clubbing in the past with an opportunity to go out, let their hair down and enjoy themselves, while feeling safe in their surroundings. Launching this April, the night was a huge success, with over 300 people coming down to enjoy music from Capital FM radio DJ Garry Spence and C-Change supported DJ Bowers.

BBC2 documentary Seeking Someone Special, which was aired on Monday 24th September and follows people with learning difficulties in their search for love and relationships, features footage from the opening night in the last 15 minutes – take a look at the trailer here.
