About this event

On Fri­day the 4th March from 6pm, Faith In Strangers wel­comes you to come and remem­ber the good old days of the Starlight.

The build­ing that Faith In Strangers now resides, has a rich his­to­ry and was for­mer­ly known as the Starlight, pri­mar­i­ly in the 60’s and 70’s. The venue was a prime loca­tion for music, social­is­ing and danc­ing through­out many decades. Faith In Strangers will be host­ing a reunion with some of the disc jock­eys that used to spin records in the Starlight, includ­ing DJ Cripp­sy who used to play under the name pse­duonym John Martins.

Unfor­tu­nate­ly, the build­ing does not have wheel­chair access.

Open­ing in 1964, the mod­ernist build­ing called Cliftonville Leisure Com­plex’, was built to host a restau­rant, bowl­ing alley, pub, night­club and petrol sta­tion, with res­i­den­tial apart­ments added above. What is now, Faith In Strangers, was then Starlight Club, a mem­bers club with a rep­u­ta­tion for well dressed patrons and pricey drinks. It attract­ed peo­ple from all over but was known to be one of the more swanky venues in Margate.

When we took on the the old dilap­i­dat­ed build­ing, we were well aware of its his­to­ry as an impor­tant venue for locals to socialise, dance and make friends. Its his­to­ry was a great inspi­ra­tion for us and we felt now was the right time to hold a night to cel­e­brate Starlight’s for­mer pun­ters and DJs.” — venue own­er Richard
