Elderly Polish couple buy Fabric club night tickets online… And rave until 5am
An elderly Polish couple left clubbers stunned when they turned up to Fabric nightclub and danced until 5am. The couple, from Warsaw, had been visiting their daughter in Watford and had read a review of the Farringdon club in a Polish newspaper before deciding to visit. The pair, in their late 70s, bought tickets to the underground house and techno party WetYourSelf, which runs every Sunday, and arrived when the club opened at 10pm at the weekend.
Promoter and DJ Jacob Hansen, 35, who has run the night for 10 years, said he initially thought the couple were lost when he saw them walking down the stairs. Mr Hansen, who goes by his DJ name Jacob Husley, told the Standard: “I was downstairs just opening and I saw her on her crutches going slowly down the stairs.
“I thought they were lost. They didn’t speak English really.
“I thought they were maybe relatives of someone from the club, but then I spoke to the people on the door and they said they had tickets.
“I ran down to welcome them to the club, I said ‘it’s amazing you’re here’ and gave them a drink.
“They had two tequila shots and she gave me a high five.
“I was desperate to find someone who could speak to them and find out their story.”
Mr Hansen said he managed to find a Polish-speaker, who discovered the couple were visiting their daughter, and enjoyed spending their Saturday nights back home visiting clubs. They had decided they wanted to visit a club in London and after doing some research and reading a review of the top club in a newspaper, they booked the tickets online. Mr Hansen said he asked the pair who had bought the tickets, and the wife grinned and said she had.
He told the Standard: “The thing I really, really loved was they had so much humour between them.
“Really good banter, I wish I spoke Polish and could have joined in.”
The couple revealed they had planned their visit carefully – and told him they were going to take the Tube back to Watford at 6am. Mr Hansen told them they could drink for free, and promised them a taxi home whenever they wished to leave, and then took them upstairs to the VIP area.
He told the Standard: “I took them upstairs to the balcony and brought them some tea – because they wanted to have tea.
“They were really sweet, they were on the balcony with their hands together ballroom dancing.”
