‘Mint Warehouse’, a nightclub in Leeds struggles to secure the first place in long-awaited national reopening. Although it is far away from the current date, the Warehouse’s plans draw some attention. The venues plans to go out of the restrictions among one of the first in country. If everything will go according to the plan it will be open in June.
Leeds’ Mint Warehouse is aiming to be the first UK nightclub to reopen as lockdown restrictions ease on June 21.
Scheduling a huge event for exactly 12:01am on June 21, Mint Warehouse have already started selling tickets for the party, which includes System and Annie Errez.
Through their Facebook event, they posted: “After the positive news from the government we can open nightclubs on June 21, we’ve decided not to mess about and open one minute past midnight Sunday night – we can’t wait to see you all again!”
People have applauded the venue on Twitter, with one writing: “Mint warehouse opening its doors at 00:01 on the 21st June is another reason why Leeds is the best city in this country.”
The UK government set out the roadmap out of lockdown on Monday 22, which is broken down into four stages. If it goes well as soon as in the middle of summer the country will get back to normal. Kind of.
Mint Warehouse is reopening as part of the final stage which is when there are no legal limits on social contact, enabling nightclubs to reopen and large events to go ahead. People have been overjoyed with the news that this could all be over by 21 June, inspiring a petition to make the day a national holiday.
