Lovers of Britpop, indie and dance stand by, because Norwich, Norfolk and East Anglia’s biggest 90s night, Common People is set to return with another fantastic evening of music and mayhem.

Over the past two years the twice yearly event has built up a reputation as a not to be missed evening full of great music, brilliant DJs and so much more. Previous DJs have included Steve Lamacq, Happy Mondays legend Bez, Rick Witter of Shed 7, Dave Rowntree of Blur and Mark Morris from The Bluetones. 

This time round, lovers of Britpop are in for a real treat as Nigel Clark, lead singer of Dodgy, will be appearing at OPEN Norwich on Saturday 19th October armed with an acoustic guitar for an intimate acoustic set of Dodgy classics in the Club before taking over the decks in the Banking Hall.

Common People 6 is offering 200 lucky ticket holders for an extra £2 more access to the acoustic set, before the normal Common People night which will see Nigel as guest DJ, along with our regular DJs across two rooms bringing you the best 90s indie, Britpop, dance and chill.

Nigel said: “Norwich has always been kind to us and over the years we’ve had some fantastic gigs in the city. I’ve heard all about Common People Norwich and it sounds like fantastic night. I can’t wait to play it.”
