Throughout the decades, a number of nightclubs have graced Blackburn town centre – but what have your favourites been?

The night scene in Blackburn has sadly died off over recent years with very few venues remaining in the town.

We asked you what was the most popular venue and you had fierce debates in the comments, but we worked out which were the best places to dance the night away back in the day according to you...

The Cavendish Club

The Cavendish – or the Cav as many fondly called it in the comments – was a popular choice for punters.

Originally opened in June 1968 the venue was reportedly one of the largest of its kind in Europe at the time, boasting a 2,500 capacity, which was later reduced to 2,000.

The Cavendish Club has also been Romeos and Juliets, Peppermint Place, Peps, Utopia, and Heaven and Hell - known by various official and unofficial names over its 39-year lifespan in Lord Square, Blackburn.

On the December 18, 1972, when the building was destroyed by a fire that was believed to have originally started in a rubbish bin.

Manhattan Heights

In 1989, a little bit of American glitz and glamour arrived on the clubbing scene in Manhattan Heights.

The club Ciceley Lane, Blackburn, was covered in neon and brass and chrome. The entrance to the dancefloor was marked by two massive jukeboxes and the club boasted an impressive lighting rig.

It was impossible to miss the club - above the entrance, a Fifties’ Cadillac was perched some 20-feet in the air, complete with its own petrol pump.

The Golden Palms

The Golden Palms, aka Blackburn’s Mecca, was one of a number of town centre nightclubs popular in its heyday of the 1970s.

The St Peter Street venue later became Jumpin’ Jaks, Liquid and Envy, which closed in January 2015 after almost a decade due ‘trading conditions’ and a reduction of customers.

It was revived as Nocturnal and in April 2018 new life was breathed into the club and 3,000 revellers packed in for the launch of Switch.

There was excitement when Code opened in March 2019, but the club lasted just 11 days.

Most recently, the club has been bought and renovated and will soon open as Q Lounge.

Mr G’s

Mr G’s Disco was the place for the dance crazy of Blackburn.

Hosting nights dedicated to musicians such as Gary Numan, many music lovers visited the club to hear their favourite artist.

Owned by Moorgate Leisure Ltd, which owned nightclubs Mr G's and Sutty's Place, went into voluntary liquidation in August 1996.

One of its directors, Geoff Sutcliffe, who was chairman of the Licensed Victuallers' Association in Blackburn, was said to be "devastated" by the collapse.
