Legendary Doncaster club DJ Henry Love.

A spokesman said: “We are celebrating the life of Henry Love.

"For one night only, we are bringing back Tryst in Doncaster in memory of our beloved friend.”

A popular figure around the club circuit of northern England he continued to work despite his paralysis.

Paying tribute following his death, a Sine FM spokesman said: "A legend to the end who will be missed by many of us.”

He was diagnosed with a rare form of spinal TB, which attacked his spinal cord and brain and developed into meningitis.

Against the odds, Henry came out of a two week coma able to talk and without brain damage after his diagnosis in 2017 - but was left paralysed from the chest downwards.

The event will take place from 8pm to 1am and will include music from a number of popular Doncaster DJs.

Entry is £3 on the door and all proceeds will go towards Henry’s family.
