Ripley Nightclub to take an Oliver's Twist!

Published on Tuesday 23 May 2023

This year, there will be no “Summer Holiday” for Kane Oliver and his family.  They have just taken over one of Cliff Richard’s famous haunts.  The family have taken over the Regal Nightclub in Ripley, Derbyshire.  It is currently having a huge makeover and the family will reopen the legendary venue at the end of June / start of July.


The team, behind Oliver’s Pub and Kitchen and Dirty Bertys’ in Eastwood and The Lion at Brinsley in Nottinghamshire are spending £tens of thousands to breathe life into the 700 plus capacity venue.

Kane Oliver, the man behind the project has promised big things for the venue.  He is already talking to big names in the music and stand up comedy scene about performing at the newly refurbished venue.

The venue is famous for being the first place that Cliff Richard played in 1958 under his new stage name.  It was then known as the Regal Ballroom and famous for folk music.  Now Kane and his team are setting about undertaking major renovations.  They will opening at the end of June / start of July.

Kane said, “The Regal is a legendary venue and we’re delighted to embarking on our first venture outside of Nottinghamshire.   The Regal has been shut since COVID but it is a historic place with a unique history.  It has a blue plaque dedicated to Sir Cliff.  We’re going to invite Sir Cliff and his team to officially reopen the club as we know it is so close to his heart.  

“This is an amazing venue, we’re spending tens of thousands to make it even better. We’re investing in state of art sound and light systems.  We’re flying consultants in from the super clubs of Ibiza.  The venue will also be improved for live music, stand up comedy and top DJs.  Whilst we are already talking to agents of some top bands and comedians – we also want it to become a hub for local talent for Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.  The Regal has existed in various forms since 1956 but we’re future proofing it for the next 66 years.  It’ll be modern but will be the entertainment experience that Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire residents deserve.”
