The imminent auction of a large building in Chesterfield town centre which was home to a nightclub and cinema for many years has set social media buzzing.

Revellers who used to frequent the Cavendish Street premises when it was Department nightclub or its predecessors Escapade and Zanzibar would love to see it reopen as a nightclub.

John Parker comments on the Derbyshire Times’ Facebook site: “Loved this place, please make it a nightclub again.” Catherine Pyatt posts: “We need it back into a club! Chesterfield nightlife needs it.”

Carol Howe writes: “Ice rink, trampoline, laser quest, anything apart from offices or car park.”

Originally opened as a cinema in the 1930s, the part vacant/part tenant building has a guide price of £350,000.

Homeware retailer Boyes holds the lease for the ground floor part of the property.

Bids are invited by SDL Property Auctions for the streamed auction on Thursday, April 28, 2022. The auction, which involves several properties around the country, will start at 10am.
