A LONG-running independent Redditch nightclub has featured on a new primetime BBC1 drama series.

Eagle-eyed viewers of new drama series You Don't Know Me will have spotted Warwick Bar and Nightclub on last night's episode.

The club on Ipsley Street is one of the country's longest running reggae clubs and was picked by the team behind the show because of it's importance to black UK culture.

Owner Clinton Bryan said: "They came up and used the club upstairs and local people were part of it. It was a good experience."

Filming took place last January when social distancing rules were in place but Clinton said "you couldn't tell" as it was filmed to make it look like normal times.

The venue is the last remaining independent club in Redditch and has weathered the impact of the pandemic due to attracting reggae fans from across the country.

The club, which has been running for 36 years, also supports local talent such as the work of Redditch artist Jonas Zelinka whose work was also picked up by the BBC.

It has recently been refurbished to create a Caribbean-themed area.

You Don't Know Me is available to watch on BBC iPlayer and is adapted from Imran Mahmood’s bestselling novel.
