Speaking about the planned reunion, Ross said: “Dusk holds a very special place in my heart. I learned my trade there and it helped me cut my teeth in the nightclub industry. It was a real feel good nightclub which everyone enjoyed.

“Jade used to love Dusk and would be there whenever she was back home.

“I knew Jade from the club and that’s how I ended up working at Industry and Arbeia. I put the idea to her and she said she can’t wait for it!”
