The new club is planned to open on 21 June with the final stage of lockdown easing Louis Ashworth

A new nightclub, ‘MASH Cambridge’, will be opening in the refurbished building of Fez nightclub later this year.

The club’s building boasts a “vastly improved dancefloor area” and will be offering table service alongside this.

The nightclub is built on the ethos "that a corporate one-size-fits-all approach to the music industry is the downfall of many a venue" and prides itself on having an inclusion policy that strives to “bring all the open-minded people of Cambridge together.”

MASH have placed particular emphasis on this policy, which is intolerant of “any forms of racism, sexism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, ableism or aggression.” This policy will be enforced by “all of [their] staff and security [being] trained to help customers in a constructive and compassionate way.”

Breaking: Fez Club closes down permanently

This announcement comes after the popular Cambridge nightclub, Fez, announced that it would not be re-opening after the national lockdown. The venue has since been listed for rent with a business rate of £28,244. Fez was the second Cambridge nightclub to permanently shut its doors after Ballare confirmed its closure in November last year.

MASH plans to host its opening party on 21 June, the first possible date for clubs to open according to the government’s roadmap for easing lockdown restrictions. By 21 June, at earliest, there are also plans to remove all legal limits on social contact and lift restrictions on large events.

The next stage of the roadmap, set to come into effect on 12 April, will see the re-opening of hospitality venues outdoors and the return of non-essential retail and indoor leisure facilities such as gyms and swimming pools.
