Wolverhampton disabled nightclub set to open

Damien Sier

The club will open its doors to the public on October 10 and will operate from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Damian, who goes by DJ MXT, has a learning disability himself and struggled to find a new location for his dream club.

He said: “It was really tough. I started doing things like that when I helped run one in Kidderminster called the DY10 project, that’s where I started.

“Starting the club was very difficult, I opened one in Evesham in Worcestershire, which closed, then moved to Wolverhampton and started here.

Damian started his career as DJ Trix, launching online internet radio station BassRadioUk.com which is run by mentally disabled staff. The station mainly features dance music from the 2000s.

The new club, which will open in Pitt Street, Wolverhampton, will focus on the needs of people with intellectual disabilities.

Damian said, “It will be a place where people will come in and feel safe. We don’t want them to feel intimidated.”

MXT Disability nightclub will operate on an earlier schedule than regular nightclubs, opening at 7 p.m. and closing at 11 p.m.

The club will mainly feature music from the 2000s, including house mixes by DJ MXT himself and other guest DJs.

Damian went on to say, “We want this nightclub to be exactly the same as a regular club, but to cater to a more selective audience.”

Special guest DJs should be hired for events, with an emphasis on people with mental challenges.

The club will be free to enter and will feature DJ MXT himself playing music, and drinks will also be served.

Anyone with questions can contact the club on 07868 498947.
