AN event designed to get young people off the streets and to show them alcohol is not needed to enjoy a night out is being held at a nightclub in Sleaford.

Joseph Hayat, deputy member for Youth Parliament in Sleaford, is re-launching the clubbing scene for youngsters aged 14 to 17.

He will launch Spring Fever at Rehab Night Club on Sunday, from 7pm to 11pm, which will feature local dance group Go Dance and a couple of solo artists including Mc Punnisher.

Joseph, who is also a student at St George's Academy, said: "My aim for this event is for it not to be a typical clubbing night out, but a fun evening which showcases young local talent.

"I am hoping to re-define public opinion of young people.

"I also want to show people the local authority, police, businesses and young people can and want to work together to tackle the lack of facilities and activities available for young people in a positive and constructive way.

"I am also hosting the event in association with the Lincolnshire Youth Cabinet and UK Youth Parliament.

"I'm working with them, in order to promote and create awareness of what we're all about in the run up to an event we will be hosting at the Epic Centre in July, funded by Lincolnshire County Council."

Joseph is hoping to hold these events on a regular basis.

Dress code is smart casual and the entrance fee is £5.
