A beginners DJ class at school was broken up by police after turning into all-night rave


Who could possibly have predicted this, unless you’d booked Jet from Gladiators to host a millennium barn dance in Yeovil aerodrome.

An evening class teaching DJing at a school ended in chaos after 250 people turned up and partied until 3.30am, before police were called to break up the rave.

The incident happened on Saturday at Rushcliffe School in West Bridgford, Nottinghamshire, after the school hall had been booked for a class that was supposed to run between 7pm and 10pm. However, clearly, the vibe created by the tracks being laid down was just too electric, with crowds arriving complete with glow sticks, and drinking ‘cans of Red Stripe lager’.

The booking had been made through Field Sports Management, who look after the external booking of the school’s facilities. 

Steve Lewis, the headteacher at the school, told the Nottingham Post: "Sadly staff were not on site, the person was known to them (Field Sports Management). They were given the responsibility and that responsibility was placed in the wrong hands. There was 250 people and it lasted until 3.30am, and at one point the fire brigade got called out because the smoke alarm went off. We are absolutely mortified by it. It is nothing that the school would ever want to be connected with, or Field Sports Management. We are part of the community and want to support it and be good residents."

Come on Steve, don’t be too hard on yourself, you may have inadvertently founded the Midlands’ hottest new club night.

Luckily, the ravers only had access to the school hall, which suffered minor damage, including broken fire doors.

A spokeswoman for Nottinghamshire Police said: "Nottinghamshire Police were called just before 2am on Sunday, March 12, following a report of an alarm being activated at Rushcliffe Comprehensive School. Officers are satisfied that no offences have been committed."
