A Doncaster nightclub which has already opened and closed three times in the past few years is set to bounce back into life once more.

The Trilogy club, in Silver Street, is currently undergoing a major refurbishment and is set to reopen as Kooky Nightclub.

We are currently transforming the old Trilogy nightclub into Kooky Doncaster

The club, Doncaster’s largest nightclub, originally closed in 2010 after seven years in business.

However, it then briefly reopened in the winter of 2012 under new management for a few weeks before shutting down once again.

Under fresh ownership, the club reopened again in March last year, but closed once more.

The club originally shut in 2010 due to a slump in trade and was snapped up in 2012 by a new consortium, Yorkshire Bars Limited.

At the time, the company announced ambitious plans for the venue, creating 100 jobs and installing state-of-the-art sound and light systems at the 3,000-capacity building – before promptly shutting down again after just three weeks.

A statement posted on Kooky Nightclub’s Facebook page said: “Leave reality at home and enter the world of Kooky Nightclub, coming soon to Silver Street in Doncaster.

“We are currently transforming the old Trilogy nightclub into Kooky Doncaster with amazing sound and lights, awesome DJs, lasers, fireworks, CO2, dry ice cocktails, an epic 3D digital wall with built-in podiums and stage for the Kooky entertainers!”

The building has been home to a nightclub for several decades.

Former clubs included Top Rank, Rotters, Elektrik Avenue, Ritzy and Visage, with high-profile music acts performing there over the years.
