New over 21s club Cameo to open on North Street

The UK’s largest nightclub operator, the Luminar Group has announced the launch of Guildford’s newest clubbing experience, Cameo. The new club that will be exclusive to over 21s only will open its doors to the public with a VIP launch night on Saturday 16 August, following £300,000 worth of investment.

The venue on North Street that has had many guises before such as Dusk, Time and Cinderella’s has been transformed into a luxurious, aspirational nightclub for the over 21s that will create 35 new jobs. The Luminar Group is the UK’s largest nightclub operator with 53 venues across the UK, employing 2,000 plus people.

The total refurbishment of the site will include the creation of a stylish new dance room and six pre-bookable private booths. The club will also offer a ladies’ pamper area with hairdryers and hair straighteners, with VIP booths bringing back glamour and opulence to the region’s nightclub scene.

With over eight years’ experience in the late night sector, Rachel Young, 29, from Guildford, has been appointed as Cameo’s new general manager. Rachel started her career with the UK’s largest nightclub operator in Liquid Windsor, before being promoted to assistant manager at Tru in Camberley and deputy manager at Casino Guildford. She is one of the youngest female managers in the Luminar business and will now lead the redevelopment of the Cameo site.

Commenting on her new role, Rachel said, “I’ve worked my way up from bar staff to management and am delighted to be the first general manager of what promises to be an exciting new venue, which will bring a completely different clubbing experience to Guildford. With an over 21s focus, Cameo will offer unrivalled levels of customer service, with a premium drinks range, fresh cocktails and pre-bookable private booths.”

Rachel will be recruiting 35 new staff to deliver the high standards that Cameo will deliver, which will include personal table service throughout the venue and VIP booths. The vacancies, both full and part-time, vary from bar staff and VIP hosts to security personnel.

Rachel said, “We are looking for fun loving sociable people who want to come to work and be part of something totally unique! What could be better than working in what will be Guildford’s most glamorous nightclub?”
