A Doncaster nightclub which has already opened and closed three times in the past few years is set to bounce back into life once more.

Trilogy in Silver Street is currently undergoing a major refurbishment and is set to re-open as Kooky Nightclub later this year.

The club, Doncaster’s largest nightclub, originally closed in 2010 after seven years in business and then briefly re-opened in winter 2012 under new management for a few weeks before shutting down once again.

Under fresh onwership, the club re-opened again in March last year but again closed down once more.

The club originally shut in 2010 due to a slump in trade and was snapped up in 2012 by a new consortium, Yorkshire Bars Limited which announced ambitious plans, creating 100 jobs and installing state-of-the-art sound and light systems at the 3,000-capacity venue - before promptly shutting down again after just three weeks.

A statement posted on Kooky Nightclub’s Facebook page said: “Leave reality at home and enter the world of Kooky Nightclub, coming soon to Silver Street in Doncaster.

“We are currently transforming the old Trilogy nightclub into Kooky Doncaster with amazing sound and lights, awesome DJs, lasers, fireworks, CO2, dry ice cocktails, an epic 3D digital wall with built in podiums and stage for the Kooky entertainers!”

The building has been home to a nightclub for several decades. Former clubs included Top Rank, Rotters, Elektrik Avenue, Ritzy and Visage.
