Two friends are hoping to breathe a new lease of life into Blyth by setting up a new entertainment company.

Scott Elliott, 22, and Craig Hopwood, 24, both from the town, have set up Sik Entertainment, which aims to bring professional and well organised events to the town for people aged 18 and over to enjoy.

Scott, a full-time construction site manager, said: “The motivation behind it all is simply because the nightlife in our area is dead.

“We want to bring back a bit of the spark it used to have years ago.

“We also want to show that the bad and sometimes undeserving reputation the younger generation of Blyth has is not all true.

“We’ve had a great response from everyone we have worked with and our followers are ever growing on Twitter.”

The pair held their first house music night, ‘Church’, at Newsham’s Side Club in February.

It proved such a hit that the entrepreneurs are now looking forward to holding it for the fourth time at The Roxbury night club in Blyth on Saturday, September 14, from 7.30pm.
