AN LGBTQ+ nightclub is hosting a series of events to mark its 30th birthday.

Revenge in Old Steine, Brighton, will be marking its anniversary with a special birthday party, including a chart-style countdown of anthems voted for by customers and Grammy-nominated DJ Russell Small playing house classics.

Celebrations starting today until November 29 aim to spotlight every aspect of Brighton's vibrant LGBTQ+ scene - from drag competitions, female-orientated nights and throwback events.

The nightclub will also be raising money for charities including the Black Trans Foundations and the Terrence Higgins Trust.

George Mills, general manager of Club Revenge, said: "I'm so proud to work at a flagship LGBTQ+ venue such as Revenge.

"Having the opportunity to celebrate such a milestone, especially after being locked down for so long, is a privilege and an honour.

"We can't wait to welcome all of our brilliant customers through our doors, raise money for our partner charities and give back to the local LGBTQ+ community during our ten day long celebration."

Originally a nightclub called Savannah, Tony Chapman first opened Revenge in 1991 and the venue has gone on to become one the most popular nightlife destinations on the South Coast, where generations of club-goers have danced the night away on its dancefloors.

The club has hosted many famous acts including JLS, Alexandra Burke, The Weeknd, dozens of drag queens from RuPaul's Drag Race, and even hosted their own tent at Brighton Pride.

Other events being hosted by the venue include "Crash the Cis-Tem" featuring the best trans and non-binary performers, a homage to the Spice Girls, 'The Big Queer Quiz' testing people's knowledge of the last three decades and a World Aids Day fundraiser.
