My 14 year old DD wants to go to this club with some friends. Apparently it's for 13-17 year olds "so no alcohol or drugs or stuff". Does anyone know anything about it?

I feel a bit scared at the thought.

I would ring it up and check them out. My daughter started wanting to do similar - but I always checked it out because the game plan was never 100% accurate.

I believe some teenagers are not very good at planning beacuse they change them so often. The group she used to hang out with would say they were going to a place and end up somewhere completely different. I am not suggesting they are lying and doing it deliberatly - its just those hormones playing havoc!!!!

It's not under-18s every night so you might want to phone the club and check which nights are under 18s. Have a look here

I think "Liquid" is a chain of clubs, there's one where I live (I know one of the managers ) They do run U18's nights but not very often in ours. Also my friends went when we were younger and said it's not always a good experience. (Sorry I'm NOT helping am I?)

Thank you for the replies.

Unfortunately there is very little information on the web-I had found only the link that Sidge posted.

LollipopViolet-could you elaborate a bit on what your friends experienced? (I can take it!)

Thanks Mrsjammi
Your link looked very reassuring, although I think it is run by a slightly different group from the one at Liquid (which is UK Clubculture), as the venue on your site for Portsmouth is the University.
I like the idea of the police being there before and after.
I have found a parents info sheet on Sidge's link, which looks good, but the timing of the event is ambiguous, as one bit says it ends at 21.30, and one bit says 23.00. As the >18 club seems to run from 22.00-03.00 on the same night, that looked a bit worrying. I don't like the thought of them coming out at the same time as adults are going in.

We have a liquid here, my sister (14) goes to the 'nappy night' . She has never reported any trouble etc and she is not hugely confident so wouldn't be happy to go if it was 'rough' .

She does however, get picked up from outside the club as our town centre is ummm a bit iffygrin so my mum wouldn't want her to be getting the bus back etc at that time.

I used to go when I was younger, (to what was martines down guildhall walk) and there was only ever pop on offer - weather or not other's were drunk before etc goodness knows. but I really enjoyed it - we;d catch the train down and get picked up at 11.

the portsmouth one, I have a friend who dj's in there he's done the 'nappy nights'/ teens and has never reported any trouble.

Thanks you all very much. Very reassuring.

I've managed to contact them and they confirm that it shuts 21:30 on a Saturday, before the 18+ one starts, and that the 23:00 on the website is a mistake.

I shall let her go but insist that she is picked up by us or another parent, and doesn't take the train back.
