TEENAGERS can enjoy alternative music in a controlled environment at an under-age club night.

96.6TFM Radio and The Empire, in Middlesbrough, are joining forces to offer Teenage Kicks every month.

The event, which follows the successful Sweet nights, in Yarm, will be held once a month from November 29.

With a strict zero tolerance policy towards smoking, alcohol and all illegal substances, Teenage Kicks will provide 13 to 16-year-olds the opportunity to enjoy Indie and R&B music.

DJ Munro and DJ Anth, from Club NME, will provide the entertainment.

Teenage Kicks will complement the Sweet nights at Yarm's Club M, which will continue, with the emphasis on pop and live rock and pop bands.

Cath Ellington, managing director of 96.6TFM, said: "Teenage Kicks will be aimed at young people who are into alternative music, rather than mainstream pop.

"There are very few places they can go to have a good time with their mates, enjoy the music of their choice and where their parents can be assured they are in a strictly controlled environment."
