The Frontier club in Batley will open its doors for the final time Saturday night before it is transformed into a gym.
The venue opened in the 1960s as the Batley Variety Club. In its heyday, the club's founder James Corrigan lured the biggest names in show business - the likes of Louis Armstrong, Roy Orbison and Shirley Bassey - to what was then a mill town.
It was turned into the Frontier club in the early 1980s.
The club's owners have confirmed that the Bradford Road venue will close after one last party on Saturday, July 30.
Fitness company JD Gyms are set to take over the plot 49 years after it opened as the Batley Variety Club
